So many people have a great story to tell about how Emmaus has touched their lives. Whether they’re Companions, staff, trustees or volunteers, these stories show the impact Emmaus Brighton can have.
I like it here, the work’s enjoyable — and I was surprised to find how well it all runs. I’m not thinking of moving on and I am now a Community Assistant and have a bit more responsibility helping to run the place.
The more time I spend at Emmaus Brighton & Hove, the more I love it. The Superstore is great for upcycling furniture and The Greenhouse is amazing – I've got plants all over my house now. The place that impressed me most was Outfit @Emmaus in the chapel. It's on par with any of the cool vintage stores around Brighton.
Victor works with Ken Bates Associates, who provide training to companions – our name for the formerly homeless people who live and work at Emmaus Brighton & Hove – to help them achieve their NVQ qualifications. Victor recently visited us to present certificates for completed qualifications and start new learners on courses.
