SLEEP POD BUILD WINTER 2020

Sleep Pods are an emergency aid for rough sleepers in severe weather conditions. They are built to help protect rough sleepers. winter is coming.

It's time to build again!

Crisis-point is imminent on the streets this winter. The pandemic and coming recession are forcing more people than ever into rough sleeping onto the streets of our city and across the region.

The Council and Bristol's homeless charities have done an amazing job through the pandemic housing and feeding the majority of our rough sleepers. As these campaigns come to an end we're going to be left with more people than ever falling through the cracks and ending up on the streets. 

We need to build more Sleep Pods. To date, we have built 700 sleep pods in Bristol which gave rough sleepers in region temporary respite from the elements.

Our stocks have all but been distributed by local homeless charities to those that need them most.

We expect the demand to be even higher this winter, so we gearing up to build another 900 over the next 2 months.

We are desperately low on funds. Sleep pods only cost £30 in materials to build and all the building is done for free by volunteers with equipment and premises gifted to us for free.

Our target is £27000 to build 900 pods.

A group of young people from City of bristol college have got the ball rolling raising funds and building the first 50 pods with us.  

So we have 850 to go- 

If we have any chance of reaching this We need your help.
