Youngsters Sleep Rough to Highlight Plight of Homeless

Committed young people taking part in the BCHA-led National Citizen Service (NCS), slept rough for the night raising awareness and money for homeless people in Bournemouth this winter.

On 11th November 2016 a group of young people aged 16-17 years old took part in a 12-hour rough sleep in Bournemouth Town Centre to highlight the need to help homeless people off the streets, especially during the winter months, and also to raise money for BCHA’s James Michael House property, which is home to up to 11 homeless young people.
