Sleep Pod Fundraising Campaign

We will build and distribute 500 Sleep Pods across UK and Europe.

Why is Sleep Pod necessary?


People are dying on the streets with tragic regularity. For rough Sleepers in the UK and refugees in Europe, many of these deaths are a result of exposure to extreme weather conditions. A Sleep Pod could prevent these deaths.

Who are we


We are three friends from the UK, a builder, a salesman and a lawyer. We met volunteering in refugee camps in Europe in 2016 and were driven to action after returning to the UK and seeing the same tragic conditions being faced by more and more of our citizens on our streets as homelessness increases dramatically. 

What is a Sleep Pod


A Sleep Pod is a one-person shelter that protects users from extreme weather and freezing temperatures. In-fact during testing when it was -6 outside it was +11 degrees inside the Sleep Pod with someone inside and after a short time. They are light, durable, easy to maintain, pack down and carry. Sleep Pods are dry, warm and have been designed to be easily made with high quality, easy to source materials. 

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.

Once the Pods are built we will work with outreach teams in the UK and charities in Europe to distribute Sleep Pods where they are needed.
