Feeling a little stuck and like no-one is there for you?
Shy, worried about the future? Struggle getting up in the morning?
Don’t write yourself off, don’t shut yourself away.
We are here to connect with you.
Voluntary Action Coventry has been making people a little stronger since 1957, supporting hundreds of people into community roles each year. We are a nice bunch and have an open-door policy. Give us a try.
The world has changed so much, some for better and some for worse. The recent YouGov survey found that 31 per cent of 18-24 year olds said they felt lonely often or all of the time and this was undertaken before the pandemic.
The CC4Y project engages young people from all areas of Coventry, whether new to the city, a student from overseas, a refugee, migrant or an established resident. Building them up with the confidence to form new social connections and beat loneliness through technology, brain food, friends and creativity.
What to expect:
- A park walk chat outdoors or on zoom, with the project engagement officer
- We will find out your interest in activities and will try to offer you support tailored to your specific needs and where you want to be
- Activities will take place during evenings and weekends
- There will be tutorials, zoom, cook and eat Friday night fake aways, polls, online games, geocaching, walks, online gigs and prizes for involvement
