In response to the cost-of-living crisis and rising energy bills, Bardsley Youth Project is launching a warm hub for Coventry Young People struggling to heat their homes this winter.
The warm hub will be open to all young people aged 16 to 25. It will open on Thursday the 1st of December and will be held every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 1-4 pm, excluding the week between Christmas and new year, at Bardsley House (CV1 5EP) in the heart of Coventry.
Young people will be able to keep warm, charge their phones, get hot drinks, toast and soup, and access Bardsley’s other services such as 1:1 support outside of these times if needed.
Research by Centrepoint carried out this year suggests that those aged up to 24 years are at risk of going without food and heating for financial reasons, as costs spiral but Universal Credit for this age group remains lower than the standard rate. We hope that the Warm Hub provides a safe place for those affected in Coventry to go, particularly with winter weather on the way.
Based in Coventry City Centre, Bardsley Youth Project is a youth homelessness prevention and crisis relief charity. They support young people aged 16-25 who are concerned about their housing situation.
