How do you measure success?

We are often asked “What is the rate of success at Emmaus Bristol?” Here are some examples of what we call success :

A Companion who

  • goes back to live with his Mum.
  • bakes delicious cakes for an event, for the delight of all attendees.
  • resolves issues with health,  drink or debt .
  • gets a job and moves to independent accommodation.
  • restores his relationship with the children he had lost contact with following a difficult divorce.
  • takes part in Solidarity actions by helping with the Soup Run on a Saturday night and helping to stack shelves at the Methodist Centre.
  • gains an NVQ in customer care  thus adding a recognised skill to his/her CV and benefitting the work of the Community.
  • is involved in everyday activities relating to customers in the shop or cooking and cleaning for the Community.
  • has the confidence to have an input in decision-making groups within the Community or nationally.
  • learns to sail in the Bristol docks, discovering the joy of feeling the wind in his/her sails!

This is what we call “success” at Emmaus Bristol – and what your support helps to achieve.
