Your Christmas questions answered

During the week 18 - 21 December 2017 we will be running health and wellbeing activities at hostels and day centres across the city. Our main Christmas event will be held on Christmas Day at a location in Coventry. We do not publicly give out the address, and volunteers will receive it after applying. Volunteers are expected to make their own travel arrangements to each venue and to be aware that there is no public transport on Christmas day.


All of our Christmas Day volunteers will be expected to attend a training session where we will cover everything you need to know to prepare you for your volunteering. You will be given a choice of dates during the application process. Health and Wellbeing week volunteers will be given a brief induction prior to the event.

You can apply via the Crisis website from 23 October. There will be various roles available including general support, kitchen, driving and activity leaders. We will also be asking for hairdressers, massage therapists, podiatrists, physiotherapists, yoga and fitness instructors for our Health and Wellbeing week.
