Emmaus UK

Emmaus has been operating in the UK since 1991, providing a home and meaningful work for people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion.

The Trust has awarded funding of £16,000 to enable Emmaus UK to undertake a feasibility study to establish the need for a women only Emmaus community. Research has shown that women need services that better cater for their needs. In particular:

  • Women only support and access to female staff

  • Staff training on the specific challenges women often face

  • Partnership working to address the full range of women's needs

  • Peer support from others who have been through similar experiences

  • Helping to deal with the loss of children

The project will report back on the first phase of the feasibility study by the end of 2017.
