Everyone deserves a good night's sleep...

Wolves Foundation are linking up with the City of Wolverhampton Council and the African Caribbean Community Initiative (ACCI) to combat the growing problem of bed poverty across the city.

The cost of living crisis has revealed how hundreds of children and their parents often don’t even have a bed to sleep in at night.

The Good Night Project was launched in the city to try and end this situation and ensure everyone has a bed of their own, where they can get a good night’s sleep.

The Foundation and ACCI have come together with the council to provide a dedicated service to provide beds and bedding to those that need them. Around 1500 beds and bedding items have been given out over the last 12 months with 60 per cent of these going to children.

Those in need can apply for emergency help from the Household Support Fund – the money being distributed by the Government through Local Authorities to help with the cost of living.  Supports is available for one-off household expenses like food, energy or household items but it also became clear that many residents were asking for essential items like beds and bedding.
