Event description

Description

#sleepwithsimon is our annual rough sleeping fundraising event. But it's not like sleeping rough. The event takes place in a secure arena with facilities and is stewarded by the Simon on the Streets team. #sleepwithsimon is safe and yet it is also a challenge. Even one night out in the open can give a powerful insight into the challenges of the elements and the isolation that rough sleepers face.

The event aims to give an insight into the root causes of homelessness and how we aim to help.

It is an opportunity to learn about the real challenges that face rough sleepers on a daily basis and to understand exactly how and why they exist. As well as facing the challenge of a night out in the open, we aim for participants to gain understanding about the issues that the homeless face and a deeper sense of empathy for those who live that experience every day.
