Emmaus Merseyside welcomes its first companions

New Emmaus Merseyside community building

Emmaus Merseyside, located in the Seaforth area of Bootle, is now officially open and has begun to welcome its first companions.

The community will eventually accommodate up to 28 formerly homeless people and its furniture superstore, located in a former joinery workshop in Sandy Road, will provide them with work and training.

“We’re delighted to finally have our own purpose built community building in Merseyside. The trustees and supporters of Emmaus Merseyside have been working towards this since 2004. For us, the important work now begins in supporting formerly homeless people and giving them a chance to rebuild their lives.”

Nigel Mellor, Chair of Emmaus Merseyside

Big thanks to the Emmaus Merseyside supporters for helping to make this community a reality. If you happen to live locally, why not pop in for a browse next time you’re passing?
