Homelessness charity Emmaus launches campaign

The national homelessness charity Emmaus is marking the 60th anniversary of the Emmaus Movement by launching a campaign designed to allow the stories of homeless people to be heard. A newly launched website is asking people to tell their stories of significant moments in their lives and to add their voices to the stories already posted by the residents of Emmaus Communities. Contributors will receive a story in return and will play an important part in helping to make people who are often ignored to have a voice. The site has already attracted some high profile contributors such as Cherie Blair, Terry Waite and Fern Britton.
