What’s the point?
Well, it’s definitely not about pretending to be homeless for a night, you don’t have to be on the street to be homeless. It’s about making a public statement. Young homeless people do not have a voice, whereas our Bristol event last year attracted huge media coverage and locally raised over £25,000.
 
Help us make sure people can’t ignore what is happening to the youth in our cities and towns. Without youth homelessness charities like us those young people would have little or no support.

  • 50% of ALL homeless people in the UK are aged 16-25.

In 2013/14 1625ip supported 1300 young people  - last year it was 1800.
