We kick off our Christmas events on 4 December 2018 with our annual Carol Concert. We then have Health & Wellbeing events taking place on 18, 19 and 21 December 2018 and of course our Christmas day celebration on 25 December 2018.
For Christmas in Birmingham we open day centres. Our day centres are for guests who have accommodation of some kind, such as hostels, B&Bs, those who are sofa surfing or get their accommodation from different sources. A small minority may be rough sleeping or may have come to us from winter night shelters. These centres open from 11am to 4pm, providing lunch and snacks for all guests as well as activities, entertainment and essential services such as advice and healthcare. The day centres cater for up to 100 guests each and are open to all.
Our centres in Birmingham are in East and Central Birmingham. They are located in buildings that are donated to Crisis for use over Christmas only, such as schools, colleges and empty buildings.
For security and confidentiality reasons, the locations of our centres are confidential and full addresses can only be provided once volunteers have been confirmed.
Where possible, we give an idea of centre location via ‘whereabouts’ maps on the online application. These give a rough idea of location without detailing the exact address.
