Roughs sleeping can happen to anyone, in Ipswich we have a rough sleeper problem, by converting a double decker bus in to a hostel for the rough sleepers, we will be able to house up to 14 rough sleepers in Ipswich.

What we'll deliver:

  • Finish the convertion
  • The day to day running of the bus

Why it's a great idea:

It's the hand up needed for our rough sleepers, to get their lives back on track, our motto is 'from the ground up' We want to work with our rough sleepers to address, mental health issues and addiction issues that have not been addressed because they don't have the safety of somewhere safe to sleep.

Steps to get it done:

  • Training for volunteers
