Beds For Homeless Over Christmas

Include an option within hall's contracts allowing students to offer their beds to the homeless when they return home over Christmas.

Done through a third party charity (e.g. Crisis) with experience in providing temporary housing to the homeless, ensuring beds that would otherwise be empty are an alternative to the cold, harsh streets over the festive season.

Why is this important?

Homelessness has risen by 128%.
There are 6,182 potential beds available.
55 deaths in December on average.
Therefore if less than 1% of students choose to opt in these deaths would be wholly avoidable.
It will provide a warm bed during the coldest, bleakest months.
