SAFE@LAST - 'The BIG Sleepout'
Our charity award winners 2015/16 SAFE@LAST are raising money for South Yorkshire's young runaways
Who are SAFE@LAST?
Our charity of the year 2015/16 winners SAFE@LAST help support children and young people (aged 16 years and under) who are at risk through running away in South Yorkshire. The charity provides these young runaways with a 24 hour phone/text/webchat helpline and gives them ongoing one-to-one support. Furthermore SAFE@LAST runs an education and prevention programme that helps to educate the risks and dangers of running away to the young people who need the support.
Over 100,000 children run away from home in the UK every single year and unfortunately 4,000 of these vulnerable young people are located in South Yorkshire. These children are at a much greater risk of violence, sexual exploitation, unwanted pregnancies, being involved in crime, failing to engage in education and being homeless in later life. SAFE@LAST understands the importance of helping those at risk, and are raising money to support the thousands at risk in South Yorkshire.
The BIG Sleepout: a runaway's journey
SAFE@LAST are looking to further help these susceptible young people by hosting a sponsored rough sleep for people from the business and corporate sector. Everybody who takes part will live the journey of a young runaway and learn the risks, choices and challenges that they have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. What better way to raise money for the charity than by being a runaway for a night?
The event will be held on Friday 19th February 2016 at the Lifewise Centre in Hellaby, Rotherham.
SAFE@LAST are asking participants to raise a minimum of £1000 to help keep children and young teens in South Yorkshire safe. But there's a little incentive if you can raise more.
