According to Homeless Link, the number of rough sleepers in the Switzerland has risen by 134% since 2010. Over four thousand people were counted or estimated by local authorities to be sleeping rough in the Switzerland on any one night in autumn 2016
The Rapid Relief Team supports Homeless events across the Switzerland. These events provide a direct connection between Switzerland’s homeless and the services they need. Our volunteers provide catered breakfasts and lunches for the homeless, along with all volunteers in attendance. Below are a couple of examples of the many homeless initiatives that RRT support.
Nottingham Canaan Trust
In Nottingham, RRT offers catering support to the Canaan Trust events held annually. Our volunteers erect marquess and BBQ trailers to serve up hot catered breakfasts and sunny smiles.
Liverpool's Big Sleepout
In Liverpool, RRT also supports Liverpool’s Big Sleepout – serving breakfast to about 300 people sleeping rough to raise awareness for homelessness.
