Leanne – 2019 Sleep Easy participant:
"I thought my eyes were open but there's definitely nothing like direct experience of sleeping out for 1 night. I now feel I can legitimately highlight some of the issues homeless people face with others who perhaps see it as a black and white situation. I know I for one wouldn't last a week on the streets and would no doubt turn to whatever I could to numb the bitter cold, isolation, loneliness and fear in whatever form that numbing came in".
Photos of our 2019 Sleep Easy event were all taken by local photographer Paul Oldham.
