My story

[p]Swindon Fire Cadets have chosen Threshold Housing Link (THL) to support for their next Social Action Project and will be taking part in the Big SleepOut as a [b]Satellite SleepOut Centre,[/b] linked to the main SleepOut event. [/p][p]Winter is coming and it is the most challenging time for those that are sleeping rough on our streets. Threshold is Swindon's longest established homeless charity and they work to prevent homelessness, alleviate the social exclusion of homelessness and influence policy that affects homeless and socially excluded people. [/p][p]Swindon Fire Cadets and their Instructors will be ‘sleeping out’ in the yard of Swindon Fire Station. They will be challenged to find a spot that will protect them from the elements as much as possible and keep them safe. The aim is to raise awareness for the Cadets as well as the community of Swindon and raise much needed funds. [/p][p]Loneliness, isolation, and lack of positive re-enforcement often pervade the lives of those that have been living on the street. Life is always better when you can share part of the journey with others. Threshold’s BIG Swindon SleepOut promotes strong community cohesion as we tackle this major societal issue together. [/p][p]Please support the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service's Swindon Fire Cadets as they try to make a difference to their community. [/p]
