About the host organisation

Hosted by: Emmaus Mossley
Organisation Profile: Emmaus Mossley is a charity that offers a home, work and support to people who have experienced homelessness. We are unique unique in that our companions (the people we support) work alongside local volunteers and staff in every area of our social enterprise. Without the skills, experience, hard work and dedication of our community members, our charity would not function. Emmaus Mossley is situated over three floors in Longlands Mill, an old cotton mill in Mossley, Tameside. The Secondhand Superstore, workshop and office space covers the first two floors and the community is situated above. Our shop is central to what we do. It provides meaningful work for the people we support, it provides the money needed to sustain the charity and it extends the life of donated items, giving someone the benefit of owning it and diverting it from landfill.
