Advice sessions in Wyken to close (for now…)

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.

Details of all our advice sessions in the city can be found at covadvice.org.uk/advice

Drop-in cancellations

We have had to cancel some of our drop-in sessions over the next few weeks due to a combination of illness, holidays and the general election.  Please check our live calendar, or call us on 024 7652 1100 before travelling to our venues.  You can view the live calendar at https://covadvice.org.uk/advice/

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

 

Further changes in Willenhall

From Monday 12th June 2017 we will be moving our regular Monday drop-in advice session at The Hagard Community Centre to a new home at Willenhall Education Employment & Training Centre, 239 Robin Hood Rd, Coventry CV3 3AN.

The session starts at 1:30pm and people are seen on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Please note that this change affects the Monday sessions only.  Our other sessions at The Hagard (on Wednesday and Thursday) remain unchanged.

Willenhall advice session changes

Due to staffing changes at the Hagard Community Centre in Willenhall, we have had to reduce the times that our advice sessions are available.

With immediate effect, our ‘drop-in’ sessions (no appointments needed) on Monday and Thursdays will now run from 1.30pm until 3.30pm only.

Please note that our session on Wednesday at the Hagard remains unchanged (9:30-12 noon).

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Sanctions helpline

Coventry Law Centre are running a telephone helpline to advise people who have had benefits sanctioned.  They can help to challenge the decisions and get back benefits that have been withheld.  Research has found that 90% of appeals on sanctions are being won.

Call the helpline on 024 7625 3160 (Monday to Friday, 11am to 2pm).  The service is free and confidential.
