Sleep Pod emergency sleeping aids to vulnerable people
People are dying on the streets with tragic regularity.
The average age of death for people experiencing homelessness is just 45 for men and 43 for women. Compared to the national average age of death in the UK (79.4 for men and 83.1 for women) this is shocking. Homelessness is physically and mentally difficult. It significantly impacts a person's health and wellbeing.
For rough sleepers in the UK and refugees in Europe, many of these deaths are a result of hypothermia and exposure to extreme weather conditions.
A Sleep Pod is a one-person shelter that can offer meaningful protection from the elements.
