About Emmaus Village Carlton

Registered Charity Number: 1083113

Emmaus Village Carlton is a homelessness charity based in North Bedfordshire, offering active support to formerly homeless people and to the wider community.

Emmaus provides a real workable alternative to homelessness, not just a bed for the night, but a stable home and meaningful work in a social enterprise, all for as long as they are needed. People who have experienced social exclusion need to regain their self-esteem to find a positive way to move forward with their lives and Emmaus provides the right environment of support to enable companions (as residents are known) to work their way to independence.

Emmaus Village Carlton is one of 29 Emmaus communities across the UK, all of which encourage companions to use and develop their skills to make positive changes to their own life and the community around them. Your old car donation can help with this transition and enrich many lives along the way.

An Emmaus community, once established, turns ‘charity’ on its head as it’s the companions themselves who generate funds needed to support the community by working together in a social enterprise. Emmaus Village Carlton is a special place to visit and offers a large home store and em’s Bistro where everyone can shop, eat and relax in the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside, all while supporting the charity.

Your old car donation can help Emmaus Village Carlton to continue to establish this special facility, as well as funding the additional services that the charity offers to support its wider community. Companions at Emmaus Village Carlton manage a solidarity committee to help other local charities and individuals that are in need. Solidarity activities include a huge range of charitable acts including support for rough sleepers: providing hot drinks, soup, and sandwiches for the homeless of Bedford and Northampton, as well as warm clothing, toiletries, and sleeping bags.

All of this solidarity work is invaluable for Emmaus companions as it can be fundamental to rebuilding lost self-esteem – proving that they can truly make a difference to the lives of others. Your old car donations could enable them to experience that feeling and give them the confidence to move forward while helping the wider community.

“Emmaus Village Carlton would like to say a heartfelt thank you to the team at Charity Car and its generous customers who have so kindly recycled their used cars in this unique and effective way, raising vital funds for us. Your old car donations have helped us provide a safe home, support, and meaningful work within our social enterprise for people who have been homeless.  Every penny raised with partners like Charity Car, helps us to help homeless people get a fresh start in life.”

Angela Roll, Chief Officer at Emmaus Village Carlton
