Description

Welcome to WLM’s Sleep Out 2017

WLM is excited to announce that we are running our annual Sleep Out on Friday 13th October 2017! All the money you raise will go directly towards WLM’s work supporting homeless men and women move into longer term accommodation, find employment and begin a new chapter of their lives. Last year we helped 366 people move off the streets and into housing through our work at WLM’s centre on Seymour Place in Marylebone.

Can you support us to help homeless people off the streets?

It costs WLM over £400,000 a year to run our services for homeless men and women and we receive no statutory funding, so our work is entirely dependent on voluntary donations. The numbers of homeless people in London has gone up every year for the last 7 years and there are more rough sleepers in Westminster than in any other part of the UK. Last year’s Sleep Out raised an absolutely fantastic £29,000 – will you help us to beat that figure this year?!

Sleep Out 2017 will be hosted by St James’s Church Piccadilly, in the security of their grounds. St James’s Piccadilly are one of the host venues of WLM’s Westminster Winter Night Shelter project, and we are so grateful to them for their continued support of the Sleep Out.

At Sleep Out 2017 we will provide you hot refreshments and entertainment in the evening before we all bed down for the night, in the beautiful gardens. In the morning breakfast will be served – just like it is in the Night Shelter – inside the church. This is a time for collective reflection on our experiences and thoughts of the night before, and to discuss why the work we do at WLM is so vital.

By taking part in the Sleep Out, you get to experience, in a safe way, a few challenges that street homeless people face every night. We’re not trying to replicate homelessness, but we hope it will help you to understand a little of what rough sleepers have to endure without the support of WLM. Thank you!
