Host your own Sleepout and bring colleagues, friends, family or even your pets together!


Pick a date that suits you


Your home, office, garden... Anything goes!

Take part by sleeping anywhere other than your bed, and experience first-hand the issues that homeless people face during the cold winter months and throughout the year.


Assemble your team of sleepers

Make it a staff sleep: Round up your colleagues, camp in your office or snooze in your staff room, and your company can make a huge difference for local people facing crisis.
Fundraise with the family: Snooze on your sofa, kip on the kitchen floor or slumber in your shed to help struggling families who need the support of our Foodbank.
Kip with your cat or doze with your dog: You and your furry friends can help bring a homeless person and their four-legged companion out of the cold and into our welcoming pet-friendly hostel.
Host a girls only night: Get your best friends together, grab some glow sticks, wear your neon leg warmers and shine the night away for vulnerable people in your community.
