Details

Llamau are delighted to announce that we are partnering with the World's Big Sleep Out campaign to host an official event in Cardiff!

On December 7th, for one night in iconic locations across the globe, we will sleep out in unison to create the world’s largest display of solidarity with and support of those experiencing homelessness and displacement.

Join Will Smith, Dame Helen Mirren, some of the World's biggest musicians and an expected 50,000 people throughout the world by sleeping out under the stars to help those who have no other choice.

Homelessness continues to be a huge issue in Wales and a shocking 7,584 people under the age of 25 needed help with homelessness last year. Llamau supports young people and women in Wales at risk of homelessness. We firmly believe that homelessness is an issue that can be solved, and that everyone can be part of the solution. By working together, we can make sure that homelessness is a thing of the past. Llamau is delighted to be hosting Cardiff’s World’s Big Sleep Out event, giving the people of Wales the opportunity to play their part in ending homelessness, both in Wales and across the world.
