About Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire

Registered charity number: 1064474

Emmaus Coventry and Warwickshire is a charity providing a home and meaningful work to 18 formerly homeless adults in the Coventry and Warwickshire area.

Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire opened its doors for the first time in April 1993 as one of the first of now 29 Emmaus communities in the UK. Local man Tim Brooke discovered Emmaus when volunteering in France in the 1980’s and gathered local support from the Coventry Council of Churches Homelessness Commission to establish an Emmaus in Coventry and Warwickshire. Tim has been a trustee of the charity ever since and he sums up the Emmaus concept beautifully:

“I have always been very excited about the idea of Emmaus; it’s not just an ordinary homelessness charity. We don’t just give people a bed for the night, we give them a reason to get out of it.”

A true home and meaningful work makes Emmaus different to all other homelessness charities. Your old car donation can help Emmaus Coventry and Warwickshire accommodate up to 18 previously homeless adults, male and female, giving them a purpose and in-turn the self-esteem they may otherwise have lost. The charity supplies accommodation, meals, basic clothing and toiletries and of course vital support in a secure environment. In turn, companions – as Emmaus residents are known – work within the community, in homes, driving to collect/deliver furniture or food as well as working in the charity’s second-hand furniture shop and providing a bulky waste collection service run on behalf of Coventry City Council and North Warwickshire Borough Council.

An old car donation via Charity Car will help to change the lives of people who have experienced homelessness and enable them to re-join society with a positive future.
