Emmaus Ipswich

Emmaus Ipswich is a new and different way of increasing the chances for the homeless and long term unemployed in Ipswich, entering back into work and have a more fulfilling life, using a tried and tested successful national model. Emmaus Ipswich is an Independent charity, holding membership of the Federation of Emmaus Communities in the UK.

Emmaus Ipswich provides work opportunities and experience to those who have been unemployed for a long time and those that are homeless or at risk of being so. By offering volunteering roles within our (not for profit) business we want to give people the chance to make a difference for themselves, in a supportive environment through work related experience and training.

Our ambition is to introduce to Ipswich new ways of tackling entrenched homelessness and unemployment by enabling and empowering people to help themselves through meaningful activity, that will benefit both themselves and others. We need your support to start our shop and offer immediate volunteering opportunities to 30 long term unemployed people in Ipswich. Our shops will in the long term income generate beyond its costs to enable us to diversify our services and look towards offering accommodation, as well as work experience opportunities.
