The Sleep Pod Founders, Ian, Justin and Pete met while they were volunteering in refugee camps in Europe in 2016. Through these shared experiences they were driven into action and designed the Sleep Pod to help prevent unnecessary deaths on our streets. After a lengthy design process, field tests and feedback from users the Sleep pod is now ready to be built on mass and distributed where ever it is needed.
We believe Sleep Pod is one way everybody can make a contribution and know that it will make a difference. We are a small team of friends who are heavily dependent on the support of our volunteers to help fund raise and build new Sleep Pods at volunteer workshops.
Sleep Pods are an emergency aid for rough sleepers in severe weather conditions. They are built to help protect rough sleepers.
Sleep Pods are an emergency aid built to help keep people warm and dry.
Sleep Pods are:
+6°C inside when -16°C outside
Quick and Easy to Use
Lightweight, Easy to Pack and Carry
1 Sleep Pod costs £30.00
Easy to make, made by teams of volunteers.
We believe that this winter will see unprecedented numbers sleeping rough and, in consultation with our partners who work directly with rough sleepers across the UK and refugees across Europe, we are very concerned to ensure that we have enough stock of Sleep Pods to distribute at the start of this winter.
The big push this year is to build 10,000 Sleep Pods. We need all the help we can get to raise the funds to make this possible.
Due to Coronavirus we're thinking of new ways we can build Sleep Pods. During these difficult and uncertain times, we believe that people feel even more unable to “do their bit” than ever before. We believe that the “build at home” campaign can help to address this.
Please donate to the project and share link with your friends and family. Thanks for supporting Sleep Pod.
