Thankyou for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
As a team predominantely based in London, we too often see the affects for many homeless people, we want to try and make a bit of a difference. We plan to sleepout on the streets of London on Friday 30th November to help raise money and awareness for the Robes Project.
1000's of people from all walks of life become homeless each year, and it is a rising issue! Research by homelessness charities found a huge range of factors can cause people to become homeless, including family breakdown, leaving an institution, mental health problems and escaping a violent relationship.
Drug dependency can be another cause - but mental and physical health problems, poor education, having been in care, self-harm and the loss of a partner are also important factors.
Who should you tell?
If you see a rough sleeper in England, you can call Streetlink, which processes information about rough sleepers and refers them to suitable agencies. It's linked with No Second Night Out, who say 60 per cent of rough sleepers are new to the streets and aim to make sure that anyone sleeping rough for the first time doesn't have to do it again.
