On Friday 4th December 7am-7pm, help make sure everyone has a bed for the night by giving up yours for one!

Join us to take action on homelessness and Sleep Out for just one night.  Swap your bed for a sleeping bag and pick a safe, secure spot to sleep at home.

Whilst we'd love to hold a big community event, this year because of Coronavirus we're asking people to partake in the event from their own homes. We want to keep people as safe as possible and adhere to government guidelines. 

You could sleep:

  • In your garden
  • In a homemade den
  • On a balcony
  • On your kitchen floor
  • In an (empty) bathtub
  • In a school or community hall (socially distanced)
  • Anywhere that’s not your bed!

You can take part on your own, with your family or with a group, and there’s no age limit so everyone can join in.*

Sign Up

Sign up for Sleep Out for Hope here. If you’re in a group, only one member of the group needs to sign up- just let us know how many people are participating and their ages.

There’s no registration fee and no fundraising target- we’re just asking everyone taking part to aim to raise as much as they can! We recommend you set up a Just Giving page, but if you'd like to raise money in person you can also download a Sponsorship Form here. You can find out more about fundraising for Sleep Out for Hope in our fundraising pack.

Why do Sleep Out for Hope? 

Sleep Out for Hope isn’t the same as rough sleeping, but it can give you an insight into the challenges faced by those who are homeless. 

This year, the money you raise is more important than ever. Coronavirus has already led to over 20,000 people losing their homes- our emergency hostel, Hope House, is currently running at 160% capacity. At Hope, we support homeless people from across the country- your support is more vital than ever to ensure everyone has a bed for the night.

Downloads, links and resources

Everything is available in your fundraising pack, but also available for download separately here:
