Get involved

Emmaus Greenwich is looking for local volunteers to use their skills and experience to support its community in Plumstead and its Poplar, Lee and Welling second-hand charity shops.

We have a number of roles available covering driving, plumbing, household repairs and maintenance, retail, admin, clothes and book sorting, social media, upcycling, and furniture repair. Emmaus is looking for individuals with suitable skills and experience, with an interest in helping a local charity.

We also need people who are happy to deliver leaflets in their local area, or perhaps host a talk at their faith group or school.

Volunteers work alongside Emmaus our companions in the community and our Plumstead, Poplar, Welling and Lee charity shops. The income generated through Emmaus’s shops goes straight back into the community and enables companions to develop skills, rebuild their self-respect and help others in greater need than themselves.
