A big thank you to our amazing supporters who took part in the Big Bath Sleep-Out: At Home on Friday 5th March. Together, we’ve raised £60,000! This is so incredible and a testament to the amazing dedication from all (330 of you) who took part. You’re amazing! In the uncertain economic times ahead, these funds will be vital in helping us provide our life-saving services. Without events like these and the help of our supporters, we really could not provide the essential life-saving support that so many vulnerable men and women depend upon. Thank you for helping us change and save lives.
Stand up against homelessness. Challenge yourself to sleep out for just one night at home and help raise vital funds and awareness for men and women forced to do so every night.
Will you join us and hundreds of others across Bath and sleep out in your garden, on your balcony or your kitchen floor to take a stand against homelessness?
Last year we provided life changing support to over 1,400 vulnerable individuals who were experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness across Bath, Bristol, and the South West. It’s a grim realisation, that without support like ours, the life expectancy of a long-term homeless person is just 45 years!
By sleeping out, you can change that.
On top of everyday challenges, the on-going impact of Coronavirus has had a devastating effect on the men, women, and children in our care. Collectively we can help provide the life saving services and support they so desperately need right now.
Previous Participants Stories
“It was good to experience the sleep out with a group of friends with the blessing of a warm home to return to at the end of it. A single night sleeping out is absolutely nothing compared to the reality and hopelessness of sleeping out every night without a prospect of breaking the cycle. It made even more thankful of my own home life.” – Ian Bolton
“It was great. I had a good time with dad stargazing. But it was also very sad as the homeless people do this everyday and in every kind of weather. I would have been scared if I was on my own, and most do this every day. I wouldn’t like to be hungry and not know where my next meals are coming from.” – Abi Pritchard (12 years old)
“We were all quite humbled by how tough it was and how hard it must be having to pack up your belongings each day and find somewhere to sleep each night. We have talked about it since and with people in the office. I think the sleep out brings a huge amount of awareness of the plight of the homeless in Bath.” – Tessa Hodgson (from Actual Experience)
