All funds raised at the Bristol SleepOut will go towards supporting East Street Mews
East Street Mews is a ground-breaking initiative that will create 11 contemporary apartments to provide much-needed affordable housing for young homeless people in Bristol. The property on Bedminster Parade has been empty for many years and needs significant restoration and improvement.
An innovative team of local businesses, charities and property experts with support from Bristol City Council are all working together free of charge on East Street Mews. Planning permission was granted for the refurbishment in late 2018 and we have now entered the construction phase.
When complete, the apartments will be offered at low rent levels set according to an amount young homeless people can afford to pay. East Street Mews will provide a solid foundation on which its residents can move on to the next stage of their lives in education or employment.
The apartments at East Street Mews will be managed by a local charity Developing Health & Independence (DHI) which runs innovative services to help disadvantaged people turn their lives around.
How will you be making the event COVID secure?
Firstly, all of the venues are outside/open to the elements. As we know from the evidence so far, being outside is considerably safer than inside.
In addition, there will be plenty of space to social distance throughout the event.
Finally, we will be encouraging everyone to take a lateral flow test before attending the event.
About the evening
By attending the LandAid SleepOut you will gain a small insight into the conditions faced by thousands of young people across the UK every single night. During the event you will hear from the charities and young people that LandAid support.
The events will be open to the elements, so please do come prepared. Throughout the evening we will be serving hot drinks and snacks, but we do ask you to eat prior to coming. There will be a hot breakfast served in the morning.
