Men’s Group

Weekly group offering food, shelter and friendly environment for destitute men.

Who we are

The Men’s Group is a FREE weekly drop-in session where we welcome men from all cultures and nationalities who are asylum seekers, refugees or migrants.
Through this group we help to reduce social isolation, increase people’s confidence, sense of belonging and strengthen cultural identity.

What we offer

We offer an informal, very friendly and relaxed environment where men can play pool, table tennis and board games.
The group also offers an opportunity to meet other men and make new friends. By meeting others in similar circumstances the group can share ideas, difficulties and experiences, and offer each other mutual support. 
We organise workshops, talks and leisure outings, and can also offer advice about other services and providers to aid general wellbeing.

Accessing the service and opening hours

No referral or booking is needed. The group is FREE to ‘drop in’ every Tuesday from 1pm – 3pm at Jesus Centre, Lamb Street, Coventry, CV1 4BX.

If you would like further information on the group however, please use the contact information below or visit our premises at Norton House during office hours.
