'Sleepouts'

Church Action on Poverty (CAP), Amnesty International, Refugee Council are looking for people to organise 'Sleepouts' across Britain.

CAP, Amnesty International, and the Refugee Council are all supporters of the Still Human Still Here campaign which is dedicated to highlighting the plight of tens of thousands of people refused asylum who are being forced into abject poverty including homelessness in an attempt to drive them out of the country.

'Sleepouts' are simple but vivid events which raise awareness of the people made destitute by government asylum policy.

See www.church-poverty.org.uk/sleepout for all the advice needed to have an effective, safe and fun sleepout.
