1625ip Sleep Out

— Virtual
Sleep Out to support young homeless people in Bristol and surrounding!
price: £5


Sign up on Enthuse:https://1625ip.enthuse.com/cf/1625ip-sleep-out-2020

1625 Independent People is a charity that supports young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. For over 30 years we have provided essential services to young people and we partner with agencies across the South West so that together we can change lives.

Young people will be heading into this winter with reduced support as so many services are unable to deliver or have been cut. There are fewer job opportunities, as the pandemic’s economic impact is hitting young people the hardest of all age groups. This November, young people will experience increased anxiety about where they will be spending the nights during the colder months. For them, there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

Coronavirus has been difficult for everyone, but for young people, the future is very uncertain. We need support from you and your communities more than ever before.

1. SIGN UP to Sleep Out with your neighbours, your community group, your colleagues, your family or even on your own

2. Find somewhere creative to SLEEP OUT
In a tent in your garden
In your car
In the bath
Under the table
In the office at work
On the trampoline

3. FUNDRAISE as a team or on your own, or in your community

4. JOIN IN to our virtual entertainment on the night

Community fun: At 1625ip, we are all about community. You may have got closer to your neighbour and others on your street over the last few months. Get them involved and make it a night to look forward to in small groups of neighbours (following government guidelines on numbers).

Team building: You can make this a team effort with your colleagues, community group and friends (from across the country!) - either in person or in separate locations. You can fundraise as a team, and bond together whilst supporting young people!

A challenge to make your own: This is a fundraising challenge, but you can make it your challenge. It will be colder in November, so please only sleep outside if this is safe for you. If you have a family with young children, you can build a cardboard shelter in the living room!

On the night: Tune into the entertainment from around 7 pm – 10 pm. There will be a comedy show, a chance to hear from young people that 1625ip has supported, a bedtime story and prize giving. We will connect you up with some fantastic takeaway choices to order on the night. We’ll even put on some yoga in the morning.
We will announce the full programme in the coming weeks.

How do I fundraise?: Fundraising happens through this Enthuse platform. We will send you a Fundraising Pack with some helpful advice. For more tips, join the Sleep Out event Facebook page. You can connect with others taking part in the challenge and share a photo of where you will be sleeping out!
