Event Description

World Homelessness Day this year falls in October, we're encouraging schools to take part by becoming Heroes for the day.

Heroes Against Homelessness is a charity non-uniform day with a twist. Pupils are sponsored to dress up as community heroes, learning how to be more thoughtful, active and caring citizens.

  • Raise money to help people in need.
  • Teach pupils about homelessness (in an age appropriate way).
  • Make use of our free teaching resources.
  • Look at real life community Heroes, in your community or globally.

Taking part in this event could help your school reach your Social, Moral, Spiritual, Cultural curriculum requirements. We would also be happy to visit and talk to the students about homelessness and how they can help, as part of a whole school assembly or by class.

The children are encouraged to look at homelessness in the classroom using our educational resources, by reading related books, talking as a class or in groups and challenging stereotypes.

We can provide any fundraising materials you may need and can offer any support.

Register your schools interest by emailing: sophie.moore@turning-tides.org.uk or by calling 01903 680740 - 252
