Voluntary Action Coventry - Coventry Resting Spaces

Voluntary Action Coventry recognises the needs of people with invisible disabilities, and we will give them a warm welcome in our rest-friendly space in the heart of Coventry every other Friday 1pm-3pm.

Dates coming up: Fri 28 Oct, Fri 11 Nov, Fri 25 Nov, Fri 9 Dec.

Been shopping in the city on a Friday or been to an appointment? Overwhelmed? Senses going mad and need somewhere to rest before you get you bus home from Pool Meadow?

Come to our FREE quiet space, enjoy a fruit tea, a lay down and then on the way out if you want then chat to our chilled staff about volunteering or community social events that might interest you.

The Coventry Resting Spaces idea was sparked from Grapevines Cloudspotting action that took place during Coventry’s year as City Of Culture 2021 and is being led by a core team of locals supported by Connecting For Good. https://www.facebook.com/ConnectingForGoodCov/
