Emmaus Village Carlton is different from other homelessness charities
We offer a home, not just a bed for the night
At Emmaus Village Carlton, formerly homeless people find a place where they can enjoy companionship and support. Each person has their own room whilst living in the community - in fact, we're the biggest homeless accommodation providers in Bedford borough. When a companion wants to move on, he or she will be assisted to find accommodation and work.
We offer work
All companions (residents) work full time and there is work for everyone. The shops and bistro provide a commercial setting where skills can be learned in a friendly atmosphere.
We offer a new beginning
Emmaus offers homeless people a fresh start in life with the support of the community around them. They can stay as long as they wish and are offered opportunities to acquire skills. When a companion wants to move on, he or she will be assisted to find accommodation and work.
