The Coventry Winter Night Shelter project is being set up with the aim of supporting those who find themselves sleeping rough in the city during it’s coldest months. Seven different venues around the city have now been found to meet the needs of up to twenty rough sleepers. The provisional dates for the project to be running are from the 18th of January until the 31st of March.
We are now hoping to make the project known to all those who would be willing to help volunteer their time to support the running of this project. We are looking for individuals and teams to help staff the selected venues over three shifts covering the period of 6.30pm – 9am each night.
A large number of volunteers therefore will be needed so your assistance in finding those who are interested will be essential. Attached below is an initial Expression of Interest Form, if we could ask you to please provide anyone who is interested in volunteering their time to help staff this project with a copy of the form it will be greatly appreciated.

As you can see, we have a very tight schedule in order to get the project up and running in January, so it would really help us for responses to be made as soon as possible. We will be providing volunteers with more details and training and welcome groups of volunteers forming their own teams at specific venues.
