Sleep Out with Nugent 2024: Tackling Homelessness in Liverpool

Sleep Out with Nugent 2024 has successfully raised £15,000.39!

The event, sponsored by Krol Corlett Construction, a leading construction company with a strong commitment to social responsibility, took place on Tuesday, April 16th at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, Royal Albert Docks, Liverpool. The Sleep Out saw thirty two participants from a range of businesses, as well as Nugent colleagues, come together to spend a night sleeping on the colonnades to experience just a fraction of what it’s like to be homeless.

The evening also held several competitions to keep our spirits high including the Best Shelter competition and highest fundraiser.

The funds raised from the Sleep Out will be directed towards addressing homelessness in Liverpool, with a particular focus on supporting the initiatives of Our Future Now’s Accommodation pillar. This pillar aims to provide crucial assistance to individuals fleeing domestic violence, care leavers whose funding stops after age 18, and anyone who finds themselves in a vulnerable position.

At Nugent, we have a long-standing history of providing essential services and support to individuals and families facing various challenges, including homelessness, poverty, and residential services. Through initiatives like the Sleep Out, we continue to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those most in need.

Simon Krol, Director of Krol Corlett Construction said,

“As a company deeply rooted in the Liverpool community, we are proud to support organisations like Nugent in their efforts to tackle homelessness and provide vital support to those in need. The success of the Sleep Out demonstrates the collective impact that businesses and charities can have when working together towards a common goal.”

“Our Sleep Out event reflects our ongoing dedication to addressing the root causes of homelessness and supporting those in need within our community,” said Jo Henney, CEO of Nugent. “We are incredibly grateful to all participants and sponsors, including Krol Corlett Construction, for their generous contributions towards this important cause.”

We are immensely grateful to everyone who attended, contributed, and made the Sleep Out a resounding success. This includes our headline sponsors Krol Corlett Construction.
