YMCA North Tyneside is calling on local residents to come together and sleep rough for one night in October to support local, homeless young people. YMCA North Tyneside is one of several YMCAs across the country that have participated in this event to raise awareness of youth homelessness. Sleep Easy will see donors sleep out for one night to raise awareness of the hundreds of young people who sleep rough every year and raise funds to help us continue to support residents and young people in the local area. Participants will spend the night out, participating in cardboard box decorating, . Registration costs £10 and participants are being asked to raise at least £150 to take part. YMCA North Tyneside has hosted several Sleep easy nights in the past and the money brought in has helped support a number young people, providing them with everything from accommodation to funding for activities which help them become more confident and independent.
