Last year, the number of young people presenting as homeless in the UK increased by 1,600. It's no surprise therefore that local charity 1625ip saw an increase of 30% in new referrals to their services. Now, 1625 invites you to take part in their annual sleep-out event to raise funds and awareness.
Sleep Out is about bringing our community together before it’s too late, to prevent young people from entering the homeless pathway. Sleep Out is their biggest fundraising event of the year, which inevitably takes a lot of time and resources to deliver.
This is our biggest opportunity as a community to come together to show young people that you care by helping us to give them the opportunities they deserve, to give them a fighting chance at achieving their goals. So, rally your team, sign up and spread the word!
What can I expect on the night?
Joining you on the evening will be Hot Piece of Brass to get your body moving, Wrap N Rolla, Mission Pizza and Have a Pinch to fill those tums and, back by popular demand, the silent disco! You can also expect speeches from colleagues and young people and fundraising prizes on the evening.
