#564 Carparks, Comfy Beds and Compassion - Norm McGillivray

Norm McGillivray’s dad was a successful business man who had a severe stroke in his early thirties and subsequently lost his marriage, business and financial security, became homeless and sadly, died at 42 living on the streets of London. This experience (and others) inspired Norm to create Beddown, whose aim is to take spaces that are commonly used and busy during the day (like massive carparks) but at night are left empty and then to repurpose those spaces into pop-up overnight accommodation, ensuring that the homeless (those sleeping rough) can sleep in a warm and comfortable bed. Those who sleep rough are always fearful of being attacked and/or robbed and by providing a safe and secure place to get a good night’s rest, Beddown help restore health, dignity and respect for their guests. I love this concept and I love Norm.
