At Emmaus South Wales we aim to help and support the homeless and formerly homeless people of South Wales. In 2016 we opened an Emmaus Community in South Wales. There are currently 29 Emmaus Communities open across the UK, but this is the first and only one in Wales!

The Emmaus South Wales Community can accommodate 24 formerly homeless and jobless people, called Companions, who will come off benefits (except housing benefit) and take up full-time work in the Community's Social Enterprise. Companions can stay for as long as they need and get support to gain extra qualifications for when they are ready to find their own accommodation and look for work.

We have five shops which operate as charity shops, which provide work opportunities for the Companions and also the funding to keep our Community going.

Former Bridgend AM and First Minister Carwyn Jones was delighted to open the first Emmaus Community in Wales on the 22nd of January 2016. The Community also had a visit from Emmaus' Royal Patron HRH The Duchess of Cornwall in July, 2016.
