Me and the boys are giving up our beds for the night to raise awareness of homelessness in Sheffield.
The Cathedral Archer project directly helps homeless people in Sheffield, by removing a part of your life that you may take for granted, My Sleep Out helps you better understand the impact homelessness can have on a person.
The Cathedral Archer Project (CAP) is a day centre that helps people who are homeless, this can include sleeping rough as well as using occasional hostel spaces, camping on friends’ floors and sofas, and squatting. Their vision is to help homeless people create homes and lives enriched by its space, content and the sense of belonging it brings, it offers a place of safety, warmth and support which I am sure is appreciated in the recent British Weather we have experienced.
When cllients (for want of a better word) arrive at CAP they are given access to food, showers, medical support and much more. They work to build individual self-esteem and motivation to help them take steps towards stability. Activities in the project give clients the chance to explore new hobbies and gain a greater sense of self-awareness and achievement. Educational activities help clients learn new skills and work towards volunteer roles. For many this volunteering experience gives responsibility and the encouragement and ability to work towards stability, employability and moving on.
