In October 2016, we will be making a change to our advice service delivery in the Wyken area. Our advice ‘drop-in’ sessions will move from a Friday to a Monday each week.
From Monday 3rd October 2016, and then every Monday from there on, advice will be available between 9.00am and 11.30am at Richard Lee Children’s Centre, The Drive, Coventry CV2 5FU. You do not need an appointment.
The Children’s Centre is part of the Richard Lee School buildings. Thank you to Richard Lee Children’s Centre for hosting our advice service and for their continued support.
Some of the venues we use for our advice sessions will be closed over part of the school holiday period. This means that we have had to cancel some of our normally advertised sessions. The main venues affected are:
- Stoke Aldermoor (Aldermoor Life Centre); and
- Spon End (Spon Gate Children’s Centre).
We may also have to cancel or rearrange a few sessions at other venues due to staff holidays.
Please telephone us (on 024 7652 1100) or check the calendar on our ‘get advice’ page to make sure that a session is actually running before you travel.
We apologise for any inconvience this will cause.
If you have used our advice services in the past year, either at a ‘drop-in’ session or by appointment, we would like to hear from you!
It is really important that we get feedback on our service so that we know what we are getting right and where we need to improve.

Thank you so much for your help. We will publish the results of the survey on this site later in the year.
From Monday 18th April 2016, our service delivery in Wood End is changing. From that point forward, the ‘drop-in’ sessions will be held:
- Monday afternoons (1.30-4.00 pm) at Moat House Children’s Centre (part of Moat House Community Primary School), Deedmore Road CV2 1EQ.
- Tuesday mornings (9.30-12 noon) at Moat House Leisure and Neighbourhood Centre, Winston Avenue CV2 1EA
No appointments are needed for these sessions. Thank you to both organisations for hosting our advice service and for their continued support.
We are really pleased to announce that we are launching a new advice service in the Stoke Aldermoor area.
From Thursday 14th April 2016 an adviser will be at the Aldermoor Life Centre on Round House Road every Thursday from 9.30-12 noon. No appointment is needed – just ‘drop-in’!
This new session means that we are now offering ‘drop-in’ advice services in eleven areas of Coventry. Full details of all our drop-in services across the city can be found here.
Developed by the advice and technology charity Lasa, socialcareinfo is a new web tool designed to help people find details of the social care support available to them locally; national information about their rights and entitlements; and details of local independent advice organisations.
We now have a link to this service from our ‘get advice‘ page.
