Engaging young activists in Social Bite's mission to end homelessness in Scotland.
Our response to COVID-19 pandemic! We're creating online resources to keep young people entertained from the comfort of their own homes!
Social Bite's Wee Sleep Out is a national fundraising campaign for under 18s who want to join our movement to end homelessness in Scotland, by putting on their own sponsored Wee Sleep Out. We'll be relaunching later in 2020. But for now...
... With coronavirus (COVID-19) closing down much of our businesses and schools, we thought it might be helpful for parents and young people all over Scotland if we created some fun online resources to keep young minds entertained and thinking! Check back to the website in just a few days to see what we've put together for you!
Workshops for schools and youth groups
In 2019 we delivered workshops and resources to over 4000 young people throughout Scotland, including the Orkney Islands!
Following this epic road trip, in 2020 we'll be moving this content online to remove all barriers, no matter where you are!
