Colleagues from the Witness Service and Consumer Contact Centres are passionate about the work the Citizens Advice do, but we need your help to ensure more people and families who have faced life changing circumstances can get the help they need and deserve.

We thought long and hard about what we could do as a team, that would challenge us and raise vital funds and awareness for this amazing cause. Sometimes the long term or terminal illness of a child can lead to financial strain and in extreme cases homelessness - so for one night (28.09.2018) we are going to put ourselves in the shoes of someone who has been made homeless and will be sleeping outside, regardless of the weather conditions. We will only be using materials that we can find in order to replicate the true conditions some people face every day - no tents or home comforts.

We hope by doing this we can raise awareness of this amazing cause and positively impact the lives of families facing difficult times across the Nort East.

We would be so grateful if you could support us - every donation helps us to help them.

Thank you

Quotes for Dig Deep:


PAULINE WOLF (ICA Witness Service):


“I feel Dig Deep is such a brilliant and a worthwhile cause to raise money, and to be homeless for the night, gives a very small insight of what being homeless feels like ”

KATRINA AHERN (ICA Witness Service):


SHARON YOUNG (Supervisor Witness Service):



JACKY BALL (ICA Witness Service):

“Who are we as human beings if we ignore the suffering of others? “


This will be a huge challenge for me – I’m always the first one in the office to moan that I am cold, so a night braving the elements will really make me dig deep”
