Maninplace in partnering with Stay, Telford & Wreikin Council and other organisations in our local community to raise awareness of homelessness on World Homeless Day.
We will be running a social media campaign called #PassThePillow, which, with your help, will spread the message about reducing homelessness.
The idea behind the campaign is to encourage the general public to get talking about homelessness, to become familiar with services and organisations in their local area who are ready and available to help those sleeping rough or who maybe about to become homeless; and to create a platform off which we can help educate local communities about the impact of homelessness and some of its possible causes.
We have received a number of videos showing people passing a pillow as a symbol of the thousands who are forced to sleep rough each night around the world.
Watch the pillows being passed. #PassThePillow
How you can help.
Along with our friends across the borough and wider Shropshire community, there will be a number of events and social media posts highlighting the need to continue the fight against homelessness. You can play your part by sharing posts, tagging your friends and family, and maybe asking us and our partners any questions you have about local services in the area.
When posting, please use the following hash tags to help spread the word:
