Join our community

At Emmaus Dover we're working together to end homelessness.

We want to provide the opportunity for homeless and other socially disadvantaged people to regain control of their lives by living and working alongside others in a supportive communal environment.

Our success depends on creating and maintaining a stable community and therefore before anyone is accepted detailed assessments of need and risk are undertaken. We will take applicants who present complex problems provided the community as a whole is able to support them.

The community is fully committed to an equal opportunities policy and will not discriminate on the grounds of gender, marital status, age, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, political opinion, disability, sexual orientation or past criminal convictions, except as stated in our criteria, unless it can be shown to be justified.

Are you homeless or sleeping rough?

If you are interested in joining our community, please get in touch.

Please be aware that we usually have a waiting list, and it might be some weeks before a vacancy arises, so we are rarely able to offer someone a room within days.

We take referrals from homelessness agencies, probation services, healthcare professionals - anyone who cares enough to want to help someone improve their life. We are always happy to send out referral packs, show you around or talk on the phone.

For further information, please contact us.
