Corporate Sleep Out in London

Join us at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on the 21st of November; as we gather companies from across London for this year's charity Sleep Out.

Take part in a challenge that impacts homelessness by raising money for Centrepoint, every single sleeper can change the story for homeless young people across the UK.

Charity Sleep Out Details:

Date: Thursday 21st November 2019 - EVENT CLOSED

Location: Stratford, London

Venue: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Registration fee: £30

Fundraising Target: £400

Your participation will make a difference.

The fundraising target is £400, which is enough to cover the cost of three young people undertaking a vocational training course with Centrepoint’s Learning Team. 51% of young people arrive at Centrepoint not in education, employment or training (neet) and so they really need creative and bespoke learning support to re-engage.

What to expect

Sleep Out is hosted in a safe and secure site that only participants, volunteers and Centrepoint Staff can gain access to.

Stewards will guide you from Stratford Station to the site on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Upon arrival at the site, stewards will guide you to your team sleeping space to lay out your sleeping bags.

The evening will give everyone a chance to celebrate their brilliant fundraising efforts, while learning more about the work we do at Centrepoint to help young people experiencing homelessness. Expect interesting discussions and workshops.

The more that you engage on the night, the more insight you will take away - not only into the scale of the issue, but also the nuances of youth homelessness and how important the services Centrepoint provide really are.

With hot dinner (and breakfast the following day) from the RAF, as well as drinks and acoustic performers, the evening does not in any way replicate rough sleeping, but it does give you an insight into the challenges homeless young people face on a daily basis.

At 11pm the real challenge begins and everyone will bed down for the evening, it will be cold and it will be uncomfortable, but we promise it will be meaningful.

It’s an early start the next day and after breakfast, everyone tends to leaves the site by 7am and head straight to work.

“Sleep Out. Do it because it’s a great team activity, because it really makes you think about the huge issue of homelessness in our society, do it because it makes a real difference to hundreds of young people. It’s freezing, it’s fun, it’s safe – it is nothing like what young people experience on the streets, but it IS your chance to do something about it.”

Abby Chicken, Sustainability Manager, Selfridges

“I'm so glad I did it [Sleep Out 2018] it has given me an excuse to speak to family, friends and colleagues about the problem of homelessness. It was empowering to share a space with over 1,000 other people all fighting for the same cause. There was a sense of celebration in the air – that we could and were making a difference, and it was humbling to be able to speak to young people who had been helped by Centrepoint.”

Jazmin Brown,  Howard Kennedy

"At eve we believe everyone deserves the best possible start after a great night’s sleep, however, we are well aware that not everyone is fortunate enough to get that start in life. That's why myself and the eve team were delighted to be involved with the Centrepoint 2019 Sleep Out, giving us a real insight into the challenges faced by so many young people out there sleeping rough."

James Sturrock - CEO, Eve sleep
