Get involved

Volunteers are a vital part of our community.

Do you want to be a part of something very special and make the world a better place? Do you want to do something constructive to change the lives of people sleeping rough on our streets?

Our shops in Nailsworth, Stroud, Cheltenham and Gloucester need you. 

Each shop has a great team of volunteers sorting clothes, creating displays, driving, moving furniture, checking books, testing electrical appliances and taking on administration duties. These volunteers are the backbone to our success.

Maybe you have other skills

Emmaus is an international charity and can open up opportunities to work overseas. John, a volunteer, drove one of our vans to the Emmaus Paris Salon and had a fantastic time. That could be you next year, so please get in touch and we will send you a volunteer application form.

If you want to find out more, please drop in to one of the shops or email us at

We welcome local people who want to work with us to end homelessness and who are committed to making changes in Gloucestershire.
