Sleep With Simon is back for 2018

Join the Simon on the Streets team for our biggest event of the year – Sleep with Simon!

Whilst we fully understand that an organised sleepout, in a controlled environment cannot replicate the sheer terror and vulnerability that a person feels when sleeping rough, we do believe this to be a fantastic way to show your solidarity towards those forced to live in this manner night after night.

This is no ordinary sleepout, as well as just sleeping rough, exposed to the environment, we have a number of special add ons courtesy of our fantastic supporters. The Hepworth Band will welcome those attending (they made a fantastic CD for us last Christmas), Red Ladder have an exclusive showing of Mother Courage and her Children for us, Manjit’s Kitchen is cooking us her award winning curries and there is more, yet to be announced.

Most importantly, you will get chance to meet our outreach staff, to learn about life of a rough sleeper, the situation here in Leeds and what we are doing about it.

All sleepers are encouraged to design and make a team (or individual) banner for use on social media – the winning banner will of course receive a great prize for the team’s efforts.

We really do hope that you join us this year!

Case Study - Getting back on track

Dave (not his real name) has been supported intensively by our Outreach Worker for approximately seven months. When we first started working with Dave, he was sleeping rough, was not claiming benefits and had an all-consuming drug problem.
