Unfortunately, due to staffing changes and access difficulties, we have reluctantly had to suspend our ‘drop-in’ advice service from Canley Children’s Centre at Charter Primary School.
The nearest alternative session is now at Tile Hill Children’s Centre/Family Hub in Jardin Crescent. That advice session is every Wednesday, from 9.30am.
We do hope to return to Canley in the near future and will post details here if the situation changes.
We would like to thank all the staff at the Children’s Centre and at Charter Primary School for their support.
Details of all alternative advice sessions can be found at http://covadvice.org.uk/advice/advice-calendar/
We are currently recruiting volunteer trustees to join our board, along with customer service volunteers.

We would like to give advance notice of our annual general meeting (AGM). It will be held on Friday 3rd November at 11.00am at Queens Road Baptist Church. Full details here.
We are really pleased to announce that a new ‘drop-in’ advice session will start at Stoke Library, Kingsway, CV2 4EA, on Friday 8th September. The session will run every Friday from 9:30 am.
You do not need an appointment but please note that the time available is limited and our adviser is normally only able to see a small number of people at each session. We see people on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis and we may have to ask you to come back another day once the session is full.
If you have a form to fill in, or if you think your enquiry might take a while to deal with, please call us to see if an appointment is available.
We are sorry to announce that our drop-in sessions at Richard Lee Children Centre in Wyken are to close. The last session will be on Monday 24th July.
We hope to announce a new service in the area over the summer. But, for now, we would like to thank Ruth and all the team at Richard Lee for making us so welcome and for supporting this valuable service.
