Hold your own Sleep Out

We won’t rest until we end youth homelessness. Will you join us?

Sleep Out is back! And it's more important than ever.

Sleep Out is a fundraising challenge that doesn't replicate what it’s like to sleep rough, but gives participants an idea of the situation a lot of young people find themselves in, while also supporting those who face this as a reality.

We're challenging individuals, groups, companies and schools up and down the country to swap their beds for sleeping bags and Sleep Out so that homeless young people can wake up to change.

Whether it's camping in the garden with friends, building a fort in the living room with the kids, or sleeping out in the office with colleagues, wherever you are, you can make a real difference.

More than ever, we are relying on every single person taking part in Sleep Out to smash their fundraising target, and help us to raise the vital funds we need to keep our life changing programmes running.

It won’t be your most comfortable night’s sleep, but it will be one of the most meaningful.

Every £1 will make a difference

Centrepoint want to end youth homelessness by 2037. Why 2037? Because we aspire to end homelessness for the next generation. This means no young person born today, should experience homelessness at 16.

Last year a staggering 121,000 16-25 year olds in the UK were homeless or at risk of homelessness. This needs to change. Throughout the pandemic, our services have been able to stay open. They have provided a safe and secure place to stay for thousands of young people with nowhere else to go.

But Centrepoint provide far more than just a place to stay. Our in-house team of health professionals empower young people to take control of their well-being and break the cycle they find themselves in; providing much needed, specialist mental health support. Once ready, young people are also encouraged to access Centrepoint’s accredited education and employment programmes; helping them to look forward to their futures.

Every £1 raised will go towards helping a young person to turn their lives around. So whether you take part in Sleep Out at home, your workplace or somewhere else, THANK YOU. Your support is so important.
