Video: Ed Sleeping Rough: Centrepoint Sleep Out


Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

Ed recently returned to the streets in the Centrepoint Sleep Out, at Old Spitalfields Market in London. The event was designed to raise awareness of young people sleeping rough before Christmas, and to raise funds for the Centrepoint charity. Many of the people sleeping rough in our city centres have an underlying drink or drug problem, Centrepoint aims to give these people a future.

Ed spoke to Seyi Obakin, CEO of Centrepoint, asking him about his hopes for the event and how the recession has started to impact on the number of homeless people in the UK.

Ed also shares his thoughts on his return to the streets, a way of life he left behind little over two years ago.
