Across Warwickshire and Coventry hundreds of young people are waking up in a place that is not home. We know that in the UK 25% of rough sleepers are aged between 18-25 and are one of the most vulnerable groups in our society today.
We are fighting to change that. We have challenged 25 individuals on the 14th August 2019 to build a temporary dwelling out of cardboard and other found material and spend the evening in it overnight in the carpark of our office.
The sleep-out is being held to raise awareness of youth homelessness and to raise funds for Interdependence Project who work with 16-25 year olds across Coventry and Warwickshire.
