Volunteering For Homeless Charities In Coventry

Why Volunteer for a Homeless Charity in Coventry?

It's always distressing to see someone living on the streets, whatever their circumstances have been. Homelessness in the UK is a widespread problem, especially in large cities like Coventry. 2018 marked the highest number of rough sleepers on record there - and it'll only keep increasing without your help.  

From safe accommodation and nutritious meals, to employment opportunities for those unable to obtain work due to lack of experience or a criminal record, there are many services that can greatly benefit homeless people. Thankfully, there are also many charities out there which are fantastic at providing these.  

People's Postcode Lottery is proud to support homeless charities across the UK and donate a proportion of every ticket sold to a host of worthy causes. As well as signing up to play, you could choose to help support those who have been forced to live on the streets by volunteering with some wonderful homeless charities in Coventry.

Homeless Charities in Coventry That Need Your Help

CRISIS

Crisis is a national charity in the UK solely dedicated to helping the homeless. It was established in 1967 and now operates across the UK. While its fundraising efforts and donations help run projects in many cities, the organisation also opens up crisis centres at Christmas time in certain locations, including in Coventry.  

You could get involved with Crisis at Christmas by volunteering in Coventry to help prepare Christmas dinner in their kitchen, provide complementary health and wellbeing services, by offering up your time to run fun festive activities or by helping transport the city's homeless to a meal on Christmas Day.  If you have a background in mental health, counselling or social work, volunteering to act as a befriender, providing extra support for guests who are need of additional help, is a fantastic way to use your skills. 

If you'd like to volunteer with this homeless charity at another time of the year though, why not become a volunteer bucket collector or get involved with a Coventry fundraising event? You could also sign up to People's Postcode Lottery and add to over £5 Million raised by our players for this amazing charity so far.
