Story

"The whole experience was a significant eye opener to the challenge of homelessness. I was struck as I packed up my stuff on Saturday morning that I could pop home to the warm, but those with no home have no choice to do that. I am delighted to have taken part." Sleep Easy 2018 participant

Every year YMCA DownsLink Group provides a safe place to live for over 920 young people, across Surrey and Sussex, at risk of homelessness. Our supported housing is much more than just a place to sleep. We offer support and opportunities so that the young people can achieve their full potential. Our aim is that they all belong, contribute and thrive.

All money raised from Sleep Easy 2019 will be used to change young lives through our Life Change Fund. This offers financial support to young people needing funds to take a life changing step.

The Life Change Fund makes a difference for young people like Leaha. Thanks to the Life Change Fund she was able to take part in an international football competition. Now Leaha has completed three sports leadership courses in the last year and looking ahead, she hopes to get into disability coaching. Read her story here.

The money we raise through Sleep Easy 2019 will help many more young people like Leaha change their lives and move forward.
