YMCA Cardiff By YMCA Cardiff

YMCA Cardiff are asking the public help us to support homeless people into independent living and employment in south east Wales.

Plasnewydd Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Here in Cardiff over 1000 homeless people came through the YMCA’s doors looking for help, with nowhere to stay for that night or the foreseeable future. These people had no roof over their head, unemployed, without many of the skills and knowledge to be able to sustain independent living and employment.
These are some of the most disadvantaged people in our society today and the YMCA is looking to build them up and help them back into the community to contribute to society. YMCA is facing massive cuts in funding to support homeless people, so we are looking for help from YOU.
Please sponsor our Sleep Easy where we (the YMCA staff and volunteers) are running a Sponsored Sleep Easy where we are SLEEPING ROUGH SO OTHERS DON’T HAVE TO. Can you help sponsor our over night Sleep Easy event on 4th/5th March.
£5, £10 or more could help put a roof over a homeless person’s head

What we'll deliver:

  • Sponsored overnight rough Sleep Out to support homeless people

Why it's a great idea:

We are asking the public to support the YMCA's drive to combat homelessness and unemployment with some of societies most disadvantaged people. Please make a pledge towards our Sponsored Sleep Easy.

Steps to get it done:

  • It will take place at Plasnewydd Community Centre outside area (YMCA PLas) overnight on 4th/5th March
