One of the key elements of the SleepOut is the boxes that we all sleep in, and for three years Safestore have donated thousands of boxes to us, as well as protective bags to save us from the rain! As one of Europe’s biggest self storage companies we see so much synergy between us and them, with homelessness and the iconic image of sleeping in a box on the street. Safestore’s partnership with Trinity in 2016 and beyond makes sure that the SleepOut can continue to take place.
“Safestore self storage is committed to being a responsible business in how we contribute and work with our local communities and we believe it is important for our colleagues to recognise how our activities can have an impact on those around us. As cardboard boxes represent sleeping rough in such an iconic way, we are pleased to be support Trinity’s Big SleepOut by providing boxes for the participants so that we all can be inspired and encouraged to challenge our own perspectives on homelessness. After all, it could be any of us spending the night out there sleeping in the cold.” Wanjiku Calver, SafestoreSafestore

We have sent residents to their head office for CV writing and interview skills, they have engaged in a one to one mentoring programme with a number of our residents, and have supplied lots of chocolate for various events! We have seen dozens take part in the Big SleepOut, and more recently we have been selected as the charity of choice for the whole of the Meals(cheese) business at Mondelez. As a result they are being proactive in engaging employees with our work, and are looking to introduce some exciting and fun initiatives, including a cross company netball tournament.
