Why take part?

By taking part, you'll be helping homeless people.

The money you raise will help to fund projects that provide life-changing advice and support to homeless people in London, empowering them to move on and make a fresh start away from the street. People taking part in our 2021 sleep-out raised a fantastic £58,000+ and we're hoping to beat that total in 2022!

We make sure that your money gets to where it will have a real impact, funding some amazing projects at some great smaller charities that offer direct support. Your support will mean more homeless people receiving the support they need to get back on their feet and make lasting changes in their lives.

 

It's not just a 'challenge event', it's a meaningful experience too.

By sleeping out, you’ll get a small taste of some of the challenges that people sleeping rough have to face every night. Of course it’s nothing like the reality of being homeless, but giving up the comfort of your bed for one night and taking part in the sleep-out is a simple act of solidarity and a chance to empathise with the position that homeless people are in.

Someone who took part in a previous sleep-out had this to say about the experience: "It was cold and uncomfortable but very humbling and I'm so glad I did it. I would definitely do it again and encourage others to get involved. It really makes me appreciate all I have and inspires me to do more."

 

Homeless people need your help more than ever right now.

The coronavirus pandemic has been a challenging time for us all, but homeless people are facing an especially difficult and uncertain time.

The pandemic has made many of us pause and appreciate what we have. The security of having a home is something that it’s all too easy to take for granted. In times of crisis, it makes a real difference to have somewhere you can feel safe and call your own. During the pandemic, homeless people haven’t had that.

By taking part in the sleep-out, you'll be helping more people get the support they need to find secure housing and escape homelessness for good.
