We understand that speaking about homelessness in schools can be difficult, the issue can be complex and difficult to explain.

We are here to help.

The Big SleepIN is a curriculum-linked learning and teaching resource designed to get pupils thinking about their homes, where they sleep and what makes a safe space, as well as the opportunity to make their own impact on the issue through practical event planning and fundraising tasks.
