On 3rd December 2021, we will be holding a sleep-out to highlight the plight of homeless young people and raise much needed funds for Nightsafe’s Youth Homelessness Projects. The event will take place at Saint Silas Parish Church Grounds, Preston New Road, Blackburn, BB2 6PS from 8pm to 6am the following morning.
It has been confirmed that Friday 3rd December will be the date for Nightsafe's annual Sleep Out event. This event helps raise awareness to the plight of some of our young people on the street.

Sleep In for World Homeless Week - Next month, 5-11 October, marks World Homeless Week. More specifically, Saturday 10 October marks World Homeless Day – a day to show solidarity with homeless people and those who help them.
Nightsafe is encouraging people to give up their comfy bed for the night to help raise funds to support homeless young people. On 30 May, the Blackburn-based charity will host their first Sleep In – inviting people to sleep anywhere except their own bed – what’s in in a tent in the garden, a sofa fortress in the lounge or even in the bath.
Who would have though a night sleeping at St Silas Church, in the wind and the rain, would help to raise an incredible £29,000 for Nightsafe!
