Emmaus Suffolk offers opportunities through meaningful activity for homeless, socially-isolated and long term unemployed people. The organisation provides education, training (including employment training) and work opportunities, and brings about the relief of poverty and resulting distress by helping people develop their skills in order to gain future employment, and maintain their sense of self-worth and dignity.

Emmaus Suffolk changed its name from Emmaus Ipswich in Oct 2017. Since opening its first retail outlet at the Dales in Feb 16, the charity has opened a further retail outlet at Sailmakers in Ipswich town centre and this has recently been joined by a third outlet in Felixstowe.  

Our shops


We have two shops in Ipswich selling second hand and upcycled goods, and we are thrilled to have recently opened our third shop in Felixstowe.
