The federation

Emmaus has a federal structure, which means that each community and group is an independent charity.

Emmaus UK was set up to unify and support the federation, providing a central set of services that bring members together and support the movement’s growth in the UK.

Anyone wishing to set up a new Emmaus group must go through a rigorous affiliation process, which includes developing a firm business plan and demonstrating the capacity to establish a social enterprise and community.

New groups are supported throughout this process and mentored by a more established community and by Emmaus UK.
