At Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland, formerly homeless people and people at risk of homelessness find a place where they can enjoy companionship and support.

We offer a home

We currently have space to accommodate 16 people at our accommodation ‘Elm Lea’ in Hinckley, Leicestershire. Everyone has their own room and private bathroom whilst living in the community, as well as many large communal areas where they can socialise.

We offer work

All companions (people we’re supporting) work full time and there is work for everyone. Our Emporium charity shop in Hinckley provides a commercial setting where skills can be learned in a friendly atmosphere.

We offer a new beginning

Emmaus offers people who have experienced homelessness a fresh start in life with the support of the community around them. They can stay as long as they wish and are offered opportunities to acquire skills. Some stay for only a few months in order to get themselves back on their feet before returning to independent living, but for others Emmaus will become their permanent home. If a companion wants to move on, he or she will be assisted to find accommodation and work.


Our charity provides a home and meaningful work for people who have experienced homelessness, in the Leicestershire and Rutland area. We raise funds by running our Emporium charity shop in Hinckley.
