Description

COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION FOR #SLEEPWITHSIMON BY PURCHASING A £10 TICKET. IF YOU HAVE NOT YET REGISTERED FOR THE EVENT PLEASE DO SO BY VISITING WWW.SLEEPWITHSIMON.CO.UK 

#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. 

Participants will experience 'sleeping rough', exposed to the elements, with only the cardboard and sleeping bag that they bring.

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

#sleepwithsimon is a fantastic educational and team building exercise, as well as a challenge. When sleeping in a cardboard box everyone is equal. If you are looking to take on a team fundraising challenge that can help the homeless, #sleepwithsimon is a great event.

The Simon on the Streets team steward and host the event, meaning that even if you chose to face the challenge alone, you are not alone. We encourage individuals, small groups and larger teams to take part in #sleepwithsimon. What you take home with you will be a personal experience.

This event is open to adults over the age of 18. Participation from supervised, young adults, age 16+ will be considered. Please contact the charity directly. We ask that everyone who joins the event raises a minimum of £100. It costs a little over £2200 per year to support one service user intensively. We are an independent charity that takes no government funding, so that we can work to our ethos of offering unlimited opportunities for change, no matter how long it takes. We are proud that our charitable spend is around 83p in the £. We take great care to ensure that the money you raise goes directly into our charitable work, funding Support Workers and time on the streets with the most vulnerable and marginalised of the homeless population.
