Organisation set up in 1999 and member of Emmaus International since 2010.

The 27 Emmaus Glasgow companions live in two accommodation blocks. They do traditional Emmaus community work: collecting, sorting, repairing and reselling donated goods at affordable prices in their three second-hand shops. Goods are worked on in the community’s bicycle repair and metal and wood recycling workshops. Emmaus Glasgow also offers an affordable gardening service comprising pruning, cutting and mowing. In 2009, Emmaus Glasgow also started to provide a soup kitchen for the homeless one night a week. In 2014, it was decided to do the soup run twice a week in light of the rise in poverty. Finally, the group works in partnership with other local homelessness charities, notably by distributing The Pavement Magazine, the monthly free magazine containing practical information for homeless people, and supports the water access project on Lake Nokoué in Benin and the Emmaus ISF group in Bosnia.
