Coventry Winter Night Shelter
The shelter is now closed.
News – April 2021
This letter explains the next steps for Coventry Winter Night Shelter’s closure.
We remain committed to supporting Coventry’s most vulnerable people. We encourage you to consider volunteering with other local homelessness-related organisations like Hope into Action, Hope at Home or Keystone Foundation.

The Winter Night Shelter in Coventry ran for 7 years. In its final year (winter 2019-20) it saw 21 people move on into better accommodation. That year, it hosted 43 people across 8 churches with help from over 320 volunteers.
During 2019/20, an external evaluation by Housing Justice awarded us a Quality Mark – Excellent by Housing Justice.
We thank everyone who contributed to the Night Shelter: volunteers in the shelters, helping to sort donations, driving the minibus, donating food, clothes, toiletries, money, as well as those who prayed for us.
We are constantly considering new ways for churches to support people experiencing homelessness in our city, and we welcome conversations about this.
