YMCA Derbyshire's 2015 Sleep Easy event is taking place on Friday 6th March 2015. Will you sleep rough so that others don't have to?
The aim is simple - get sponsored to sleep rough for one night, raising funds to help disadvantaged young people build a future.
2014 was our most successful Sleep Easy event yet. We raised a staggering £44,000. This money has been instrumental to YMCA Derbyshire. In an eight month period it's enabled;
- 131 people to have a safe place to stay - 86 of whom were under 25 years of age
- Family mediation work to take place resulting in 29 people returning home
- 119 positive move-on's - 75 of whom were under 25 years of age
- 460 hours of extra support to be given to people who needed it most
- No referrals being made to A&E due to self harming as a result of a project that was established to promote coping skills for our residents
- 12 young people to gain a Business Mentor giving the extra support needed to gain employment - so far 4 young people have already gained employment as a result
