New windows to keep the homeless warm in Coventry this Christmas

Coventry Editorial 16th Dec, 2023   0

NEW doubled-glazed windows have been installed at homelessness charity Emmaus Coventry and Warwickshire to help keep the people inside warm this Christmas.

The 12 windows have been installed in bedrooms and communal rooms at the charity’s Coventry community home, which is occupied by previously homeless people.

The loft has also been insulated.

Many of the old windows, installed when the charity started in the 1990s, had fallen into disrepair.

Charity chiefs raised half the cash for the project while its partners, gas distribution firm Cadent, matched the money.

The charity supports those who are homeless by providing them with a home, work and support for as long as they need it.

Julie, who was homeless and moved into Emmaus’s accommodation earlier this year, said: “I can now see clearly through my bedroom window and enjoy the views.

“It seems a lot quieter with the new windows, and I can close mine properly now, so hopefully my room will be a lot warmer in winter.”
