Emmaus provides a unique and innovative solution to homelessness. The Community offers companionship, a place to live and work, and an opportunity to integrate back into mainstream society.

Emmaus Communities are predominantly self-funded through the sale of donated and recycled goods with Companions contributing through work as much as they are able with profits going to help others in greater need.

In 2012 Emmaus UK reviewed its strategic direction and after consultation approved its five-year strategic plan for 2012 – 17.

In 2013 the Emmaus Brighton & Hove Board of Trustees set about defining its strategic plan for the following five years. In that year, the Community increased the number of Companion places and opened two new enterprises. A Strategy Committee was tasked with developing the new strategy and formed task groups compromising trustees, staff and Companions to make recommendations. Its findings will form the basis of our work for the next five years and will be subject to review to reflect the changes in the operational environment in which the Community works.
