Reduction Targets & Objectives 2020
We value and continue our relationship with Beddown to help increase our impact on the Homeless in the local community.
What Beddown is all about
The aim of Beddown is to take spaces that are commonly used and busy during the day but at night are left vacant or empty. Beddown then activates and repurposes the space at night into pop-up accommodation to ensure the homeless, those who are sleeping rough are then able to come and get into a bed at night. Many of the homeless suffer from sleep deprivation due to the conditions of living on the streets, sleep deprivation can lead to many physical and mental health conditions, such as:
It can also impair cognitive function and lead to alcohol or drug use.
Those who sleep rough are security conscious too in fear of being attacked and goods taken.
By Beddown providing a safe, secure and comfortable place to get a good night’s rest, we help restore health, dignity and respect.
