Event description

Description

Cornerstone will be hosting this year’s Big Sleep Out at the Xaverian College to support and raise fund for the homeless and the rough sleepers. Your sponsorship will provide shelter for up to 30 people a night in Cornerstone’s Safe Haven pods.

You can enter as an individual, or as a family, with friends, or as a team with work colleagues, or as an organisation. The Bishop of Salford John Arnold will also be taking part. We do not set a minimum sponsorship, but we encourage participants to raise funds as much as they can.

Since 2015, Cornerstone has been running portacabins – that we call ‘pods’ – that serve as a temporary shelter for the destitute, the homeless and the rough sleepers.

There are many reasons why someone would end up sleeping rough or becoming homeless: from family breakdown, mental health problems, alcohol and drug problems, to those who are working with a zero hour contract who cannot afford accommodation.

There are too many people with low income but not enough social housing especially for those who are single and between the age of 18 to 60. We saw our brothers and sisters who escaped violence in another part of the world only to find themselves rejected in the UK. Asylum seekers and refugees who cannot find affordable accommodation are often found themselves homeless.
