Join Sleep Easy on Friday 9 October 2020 and help transform young lives

Did you know? - Every week, we support 750 young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Sussex and Surrey

- Youth homelessness means a young person has no safe space to call home they are forced to sleep on the street, in shelters, vacant buildings or on sofas and floors

- We provide young people with more than a safe room to stay wraparound services that support them with mental health issues, budgeting, gaining employment, training or education, and wellbeing projects

What: Spend a night sleeping anywhere but your bed in your own home, such as a garden, hallway, or other floorspace, all to raise money to help tackle the root causes of youth homelessness.

Who: Anyone can take part! Families, businesses, teams and individuals are all welcome - with special activity packs available for children!

Where: Anywhere other than your bed! Connect with us on the night through our online agenda, which includes bedtime stories from Julia Donaldson and Floella Benjamin and a chance to hear from our young people about their experiences of youth homelessness.
