Staff from the Leeds office of Weightmans, national law firm have chosen the homelessness charity Simon on the Streets as their nominated charity for 2019/20 financial year.
For the second year running, we will be taking on the challenge of sleeping out for a night to raise awareness and funds for those struggling with homelessness in West Yorkshire.
The 'Sleep with Simon' event is an annual sleep out where participants take to the streets overnight to get an idea of what it is like to be homeless. The event cannot replicate the horror faced by those forced to do this every night, but it is designed to educate and raise awareness of the issue, as well as bringing in much needed funds.
Thank you for your support.
Simon on the Street exists to provide support to those people in our community, who are often excluded from, or who refuse the intervention of other services, with a view to empower them to change their lives.Adopting a usually long term approach, we achieve this by providing our service users support directly on the street through outreach. Our support is unconditional, all times of day and night. We provide motivation towards accessing a wide range of services to help improve the health of our service users and life choices they make.
