What's it about?
Each year Threshold hosts Swindon’s BIG SleepOut for the Homeless. This year, we are extremely happy to be hosting our BIG SleepOut in our 'new' normal way since restrictions have been lifted and we are now able to gather together to raise money and awareness. This year we will be holding the event at the Swindon Supermarine Sports & Social Club. You can take part as an individual or get together a group of friends, family or colleagues to experience this very special event.
During the pandemic leading homelessness services across the UK, with unprecedented support from central and local government, responded to the ‘Everyone In’ directive in March and worked tirelessly to accommodate and support the homeless. At present, from the onset of the November 5th lockdown, no such ‘Everyone In’ directive has been made by central government and Swindon has not received additional priority funding under the ‘Protect Programme’. At present there remain individuals sleeping rough on Swindon’s streets and Threshold remains their primary contact for face-to-face support during the present times.
For over 49 years Threshold has made a meaningful difference to the lives of so many and at present, during this most unprecedented dangerous and challenging time our unrelenting frontline support is critical to those experiencing or facing homelessness. Now more than ever before your solidarity with our mission and your financial support is crucial to helping us continue to deliver care, over and above what could normally be expected in any given year.
Please consider supporting Threshold, Swindon’s Homeless Charity, in 2021 so that we can continue to provide the care and extended support services demanded of us by present needs.

It also totally removes any stress of handling charity cash. What you raise via your Wonderful.org Fundraising Page – goes straight to Threshold.
