We aim to improve the health, economic status, emotional and spiritual well-being of those with whom we interact. An innovative social enterprise, we specialise in engagement and support. Through the holistic provision of bespoke solutions, we are committed to offering hope and opportunity across Lancashire.

    ABOUT US

    Emmaus supports formerly homeless people by giving them a home within a community, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to get back on their feet again.

    Emmaus communities are not hostels for the homeless; they provide a home for as long as someone needs it. For many, this support and stability is like the family they don’t have, providing a safe environment in which to settle and rebuild their lives.

    Whilst Emmaus is an international charity and there are over 350 communities across the world and in the UK alone 30, offering over a 1000 beds for people who are homeless, each is an individual charity and has to pay for its own local running itself. We are not nationally or government funded and believe we should pay our own way via running various social enterprises.

    Emmaus Preston has a house for up to 26 people and runs the largest charity shop in the country, the former B and Q just off North Road Preston, as well as a store on Fishergate (Preston Town Centre). Both of these stores sell a mix of new and donated goods including washing machines, cookers, refrigeration, new beds, bedroom furniture, office furniture and much more. We additionally have a smaller store on Deepdale Mill Street selling just donated goods. The stores are staffed and run solely by our Companions, formerly homeless people, and all the income from the stores directly pays for the food, support, training, activities and move on for the people who live in Emmaus Preston.

    If you are an individual or an organisation purchasing items please spend your money with us and not only will you get great prices but you will directly help to support someone who was homeless to never end up on the streets again.

    ABOUT US

    RELEASE into Victory (RiV) is a support service for adults over the age of 18 who have experienced or are affected by Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA). RiV is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company established in 2013; based in Leyland, we operate across Central Lancashire. Fundraising for our services is through the Angel Gifts shop and crafts centre at 98 Hough Lane, and our training, engagement ad counselling support takes place in our dedicated workshop and counselling rooms upstairs.

    Watch our interview on That’s TV Lancashire and visit us online for more about our shop: https://www.facebook.com/angelgiftsgg

    As a service, Release into Victory have three action points:

    • Raising awareness of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA): The time has come to stand together and face the fact that CSA is a whole society issue, if we ignore the problem we are simply allowing a veil of secrecy for the abusers to hide behind and therefore giving perpetrators opportunities to continue with this crime against vulnerable children. By raising awareness of CSA we can send a message to perpetrators that as a community we believe that sexual abuse is unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated it in our society.
    • Training for support services: Our multi-agency approach is a major component of our service. We work in collaboration with local support services by exchanging & sharing Information, skills and expertise. We are running sample sessions from our training room in Leyland from March 2020 for support agencies to find out more about this service.
    • Support for survivors: Survivors deserve to be heard in a way that is best for them as individuals. People who have been abused often need and benefit from opportunities to validate their stories, speaking out about their experiences often leads to a sense of freedom and relief and can be very empowering. Our 1:1 confidential listening service, provides support to individuals to enable them to work out where they are emotionally on their own personal healing journey, and signpost on to professional counselling/therapy if required. We also provide access to our Peer Support Network.
