UPDATE: 4 April 2022 – the Broadland Housing team slept out on Friday 11 March (pictured below) – employees, friends and supporters raised over £1,700 in sponsorship. In total the YMCA raised £5,500 from the Sleep Out!
Broadland Housing’s Chief Executive, Michael Newey, will lead a team of employees sleeping rough to raise funds for YMCA Norfolk next month.
As part of the national YMCA Sleep Easy 2022 campaign, the Broadland team will sleep out on the night of Friday 11 March. Employees will bed down in the car park of the YMCA’s new Community Hub on Aylsham Road in Norwich.
We are delighted to partner with YMCA Norfolk to help raise much-needed funds to transform the lives of young people in Norfolk. Last year, more than 4,200 people are estimated to have slept rough across England and Wales. We will be sleeping out to raise awareness and funds so that young homeless people in Norfolk can have a safe, secure place to call home.Michael Newey, Chief Executive, Broadland Housing Group

About Sleep Easy 2022
Each year YMCA Norfolk joins YMCAs from across England and Wales to take part in a mammoth Sleep Easy fundraising event with the aim of raising vital funds to help tackle the root causes of youth homelessness.
From 7pm on Friday 11 March to 7am on Saturday 12 March, hundreds of people across the country will be sleeping anywhere but their beds to raise awareness of the thousands of young people who are made homeless each year.
YMCA Norfolk is calling on the county to join in! Every night YMCA Norfolk provides a safe home and support for over 260 vulnerable young people in the county. Money raised from the event will go towards delivering much-needed support for residents and vulnerable young people. This year it will help provide homes for homeless young people in Norwich.
YMCA wants to support young people towards independent living. This means not only providing them with a roof over their head but also somewhere that they’re proud to call home.
