Where your money goes?

The BIG Sleepout raises funds to support the continuation of SAFE@LAST's vital services for children and young people. Below are examples of how the money you raise could be used.

 

£5

registration fee could buy a warm meal for a young person staying in the children’s refuge.

 

£10

could cover the costs of the calls of four young people to our helpline allowing them to access help and support.

 

£50

could buy a set of clean clothes and toiletries for a young person who has been sleeping rough.

 

£100

could allow our Detached Street Workers to provide a session for young people on the streets which begins to engage them in safer activities.

 

£200

could cover the costs of the web chat service for four months so we can offer a listening ear to young people who feel too frightened to talk on the phone.

 

£500

could provide a professional out of hour’s urgent response to 21 young runaways to ensure they are safe and supported to return home when possible.

 

£1000

could keep a young person safe from harm in our confidential refuge over a weekend when no other help may be available to them.
