On Sunday 24 March a team of 12 from Croydon College will brave the elements for one night giving up their warm, cosy beds and sleep on the cold hard floor as part of the first ever Evolve Housing Sleep Out Croydon.
Principal and CEO, Caireen Mitchell, will be joined by staff from across the College and many others from businesses in and around Croydon to raise much needed funds with the aim of supporting homeless people into independence.
This great event is organised by Evolve Housing and is sponsored by Croydon BID. Evolve help homeless people off the streets and into positive, independent lives. Starting with quality accommodation and 360° support the aim is to lead those in need to independence.
Every day, their team of key workers and expert staff, support homeless people with everything from life skills, budgeting, mental health to work and education. With this expertise and the vital support services, they help homeless people to completely rebuild their lives.
The money raised will go directly to counselling services as well as work & learning programs and ultimately leading to positive independent lives.
