All funds raised at the Bristol SleepOut will go towards alleviating youth homelessness

On the 10th March the LandAid SleepOut in Bristol will raise money to help support young people who are homeless.

Last year, an estimated 121,000 young people approached their council as they were homeless or at risk of homelessness. This is a 40% rise in 5 years.

The Covid-19 crisis has had an immense effect on all of us. This has been felt even more acutely by young people facing homelessness. Reports from the charities that LandAid support have mentioned that they're facing not only a homelessness crisis, but a mental health one too.

One potential project in the pipeline is East Street Mews - a ground-breaking idea that could 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 on East Street Mews.  Planning permission was granted for the refurbishment in late 2018.

When complete, the apartments would be offered at low rent levels set according to an amount young homeless people can afford to pay.  East Street Mews would provide a solid foundation on which its residents can move on to the next stage of their lives in education or employment.

Our hope is that the apartments at East Street Mews would be managed by local charity Developing Health & Independence (DHI) which runs innovative services to help disadvantaged people turn their lives around.

The venue

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.
