About Sleep Out

Last year, 103,000 young people in the UK approached their local council for support to help combat homelessness.

Centrepoint Sleep Out events provide an opportunity to bring change to the stories of young people facing homelessness in the UK.

Over the past 15 years, Sleep Out has brought teams and individuals together across the UK to raise a phenomenal £4 million. This has enabled Centrepoint as a charity to strengthen our vital services and expand our reach, better supporting more young people who need us.

Centrepoint helps to transform the lives of young people and enable them to leave homelessness behind. We need your help more than ever before.

This year we want to exceed our goal of £1 million, here is how your fundraising can help:

By sleeping out with friends, family or colleagues for just one night, you can show your support for the incredible young people we work with and volunteer to help fund the projects and services they need to get their lives back on track.

Wherever you are, there’s a Sleep Out charity event that you can take part in.

Centrepoint hosts Sleep Out events to raise money in London, Manchester, Bradford, Barnsley and Sunderland. You can also join one of our EYH partner events - for a full list of Sleep Out events, click on the locations button at the top of the page.

This won’t be the most comfortable night you’ve ever spent, but we promise it will be one of the most meaningful.

Your target is £400:

"£400 is enough to cover the cost of 16 counselling sessions for a vulnerable young person at Centrepoint."

Why should you participate in the Centrepoint Sleep Out 2019?

Having hosted a Sleep Out annually for the past fifteen years, it is safe to say we are veterans in putting on one of the most unique and important fundraising events in the sector. As the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity we rely on charity events to help us further our ambition to end youth homelessness. Sleep Out 2019 does not aim to emulate life of rough sleepers. What it aims to do however is provide us with the funds to continue helping those in need, and providing help for homeless youth. The money you raise by participating in Sleep Out will go towards our incredible mental health support and learning and development teams that support homeless young adults in our services. Our support goes so much further than simply emergency living. We understand the issues surround youth homelessness in each area, and with the money raised at Sleep Out 2019 we can continue providing the life changing, long term help for homeless youth that we do in each locality  - and by participating in Sleep Out, YOU can be a part of it.
