What is Sleep Easy?
Each year YMCA Norfolk joins YMCAs from across England and Wales to take part in a mammoth Sleep Easy fundraising event with the aim of raising vital funds to help tackle the root causes of youth homelessness.
Since its beginnings in 2010, YMCA Sleep Easy has seen over 7,000 people sleep rough across England in order to raise over £1.5 million for local YMCA services that assist young people in rebuilding their lives.
And so, from 7pm on Friday 8th March to 7am on Saturday 9th March, YMCA Norfolk is calling on supporters and fundraisers to join #SleepEasy2024.
Where is Sleep Easy 2024?
We’re inviting participants to join us at our Community Hub at 61a Aylsham Road, Norwich, NR3 2HF, where we’ll be sleeping in our car park.
Alternatively, you can host your own Sleep Easy. By spending a night in an unusual place or sleeping outside, you will experience what it’s like for many homeless people who do not have access to a roof over their head.
Where do the funds go?
Every night YMCA Norfolk provides a safe home and support for 240 vulnerable young people in Norfolk. Money raised from the event will go towards delivering much needed support for residents and vulnerable young people, including emergency accommodation, counselling, life coaching, employment support and much more.
How can I get involved?
You can see our Guide to Sleep Easy below. This tells you everything you need to know to get involved.
