Emmaus Norfolk and Waveney provides a home for as long as needed and meaningful work for up to 23 people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion, offering them an alternative route out of homelessness within a supportive environment.

Inhabitants, known as companions, gain valuable skills through working in the charity's two second-hand shops in Ditchingham and Bungay.

Trustees meet as a board 12 times each year and individual trustees may also get involved in other ways. The charity provides full induction training and offers reimbursements for travel expenses.
