History

Back in the late 1970s, the community of Stoke Heath in Coventry saw some young people from the local area were struggling and getting into trouble.

A group of volunteers came together and came up with the idea that with access to emergency housing, these young people could be supported to make a change. They approached the local council for help and were given a property – 84 Valley Road – and Valley House was born.

Since its beginnings in 1977, Valley House has grown from a single house to an entire organisation offering a range of accommodation and community based services for vulnerable people in and around Coventry.
