The sleep pod founders


The Team

  • The Sleep Pod Founders, Ian, Justin and Pete met while they were volunteering in refugee camps in Europe in 2016. Through these shared experiences they were driven into action and designed the Sleep Pod to help prevent unnecessary deaths on our streets.
  • We believe Sleep Pod is one way everybody can make a contribution and know that it will make a difference. We are a small team of friends who are heavily dependent on the support of our volunteers to help fund raise and build new Sleep Pods at volunteer workshops. 




  • The number of rough sleepers in this country has risen by 169% since 2010. People are dying on the streets with tragic regularity. For rough sleepers in the UK and refugees in Europe, many of these deaths are a result of exposure to extreme weather conditions. A Sleep pod could prevent these deaths. 


A Lifesaving Shelter

  •  The Sleep Pod is not a solution to the crisis, it’s one measure - a lifesaving shelter to be made available to outreach teams and rough sleepers and refugees that haven’t managed to access the existing services.
