We are humbled to present ‘My Escape’, the third episode in our new series ‘This Is My Story’.

The series was created in partnership with our young people to empower them and inspire others to reach out to MACS for support. ‘My Escape’ gives us an insight into some of the struggles a young person may experience before arriving to Northern Ireland and how we can support them to feel like they belong.

Without the support of our funders and generous donations raised via the annual Sleep Out we wouldn’t be able to provide these life saving services. We’d like to take a moment to sincerely thank everyone who took part in, or supported, this years Backyard Sleep Out. We’re thrilled to say the fundraising total has now surpassed £12,500 – an incredible amount that will make a huge impact on the lives of young people across Northern Ireland.

Thank you again to our partners, we couldn’t have done it without you! Streamvale Farm – Moo too You, Pizza Works, Edge Coffee, Belfast Live, Arts for All, KoosKoos, Blackwater Graphics, Hugh McCann’s Bar, Beauty Cabin, MACS Muddy Paws, Kier and Oliver Jeffers.
