Event Description

Sleep Easy is a fundraising event organised by YMCAs to help young homeless people build a better future.

Please join YMCA North London's event by sleeping out for the night - at our exciting new event venue - Hornsey Town Hall - to raise funds and raise awareness of the hardship that young, homeless people endure while sleeping rough.

As the UK homelessness crisis continues to escalate, with a doubling of people sleeping on the streets since 2010, there’s also the hidden homeless, with up to 62% of single homeless people regarded as “hidden” and who may not even show up in official figures. Sleep Easy gives people the opportunity to make a difference to this crisis and to contribute directly to our hostel which offers accommodation and support to up to 300 people per year who are homeless /at risk of being homeless.

This event is suitable for families. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Our New Chances Bursary supports young people to buy clothes/travel cards to attend interviews; attend a training course to build up their skills, or equipment required for apprenticeships.

Our Mentors Project will provide volunteer mentors with similar experiences to current residents, with peer-to-peer mentoring, to inspire and motivate.

  • £ 61 - supports a child from a low income family to join gym camp.
  • £ 20 - could buy a weekly travelcard for a jobseeking young person.
  • £ 11 - could fund a discounted afterschool club session.
  • £ 5 - could help provide a young homeless person with a wash kit.
  • £ 2 - could help provide a meal at our breakfast club.
