Coventry Safe Space opens this December, which is a new partnership service which will be running throughout Christmas to help keep people safe during the festive period.
Coventry Public Health, Licensing, Coventry Police, Arley Medical Services, St John The Baptist Church and the Street Pastors have teamed up to bring the Coventry Safe Space campaign to the city this Christmas.
Coventry Safe Space is about providing a safe space in the heart of the city at one of the busiest times of the year. The project is about teaming up to provide a safe space where we can work together to reach out to people who may need a bit of safety and medical support during a night out in the lead up to, and during, Christmas and New Year.
The service will be available at St John the Baptist Church – Corporation Street, Coventry, CV1 3AY and will operate from 10pm till 3am for most nights at the Church providing a range of support services. This will include a First Aid service provided by Arley Medical Services, water bottles, flip flops, blankets, waste bags and support from Street Pastors to get people home safely.
The service will run at the following hours:
• Friday 15th December 2017 (from 10pm- 3am)
• Saturday 16th December 2017(from 10pm – 3am)
• Friday 22nd December 2017(from 10pm – 3am)
• Saturday 23rd December 2017(from 10pm – 3am)

• Saturday 30th December 2017 (from 10pm – 3am)

The Council will be posting live on social media on the first night of the service on Friday 15th December from 10pm and again on the night of Saturday 30th December from 10pm on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #covsafe
