Sleep Out Success!

Remember that night last October when 50 of our supporters spent the night sleeping on the streets? For some it felt like a very long and cold night and one they wouldn’t want to have to repeat – and thanks to them, 217 individuals do not have to sleep rough anymore.

Since the Sleep Out, over 1000 homeless people have used the day centre and, a result of your fundraising, we have been able to provide more than 4,000 one to one advice sessions. We’ve directly supported at least 217 people to move into accommodation and 47 people into paid work. Thank you to everyone who took part, donated, promoted the event and supported our fantastic Sleep Out participants who raised over £24,000 for the day centre's Advice Service! 

Would you consider sleeping on the streets so that others don’t have to? If so, please contact Jenny on Jennifer.Munday@wlm.org.uk for information on Sleep Out 2015.
