Sleep in the Park 2018 was the largest ever event of its type, with around 10,000 people sleeping out, including our colleagues, David Ramsay and Doug Gibson. On Saturday 8th December Social Bite hosted four events in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow, featuring busking sets from superstar acts, a bedtime story from an iconic local figure and the voices of those who have experienced homelessness and housing insecurity.
A proportion of the money raised from Sleep in the Park will continue to go towards Housing First Scotland, a programme that will take 830 of Scotland’s most vulnerable people into stable, permanent homes.
Josh Littlejohn, from Social Bite, said: “Scotland, a nation of pioneering innovation. This is a pivotal time in our nation with the development of Housing First Scotland, the increasing political, public, and cultural support to end homelessness. It is incredible to have so many people joining the movement and believing that a Scotland where everyone has a safe place to call home is possible when we all play our part.”
