Bishop Martin's Sleepout

Bishop Martin will be joining others in Littlehampton on Saturday 23 February 2019 to raise awareness of the homeless on our streets.

Turning Tides (formerly Worthing Churches Homeless Project) works to help transform people’s lives in the local community. Started in 1991 by four local Christians who took soup, blankets and sleeping bags to the seafront to local homeless people. From this small beginning Turning Tides was born. We now work across Sussex in Worthing, Littlehampton, Horsham and East Grinstead and have grown to over 100 staff and 300 volunteers. We provides a range of services, which offer opportunities to regain independence.

Turning Tides believe that everyone has the right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives. We believe in showing those who need our help, that the wider community are there to support them and to offer hope for a better future.

The work undertaken by Turning Tides is crucial, people who live in our accommodation receive the specialist support they need to ensure their recovery. We empower homeless or insecurely housed individuals to achieve sustainable independent living.

The Sleepout will be at  River beach primary school, York Rd, Littlehampton BN17 6EW.
