Emmaus is a charity that gives back.
One of the most important parts of the Emmaus ethos is solidarity. This means working to help someone less fortunate than yourself.
This can be very valuable for Emmaus Companions as it is often key to helping to rebuild self-esteem, proving that everyone has the capacity to make a difference to the lives of others.
Acts of solidarity can vary from raising money for a charity that means a lot to the Companion or Community, to doing work to help someone in the wider local community.
