Swap your bed for a sleeping bag and help fight homelessness in your sleep!

We want more people than ever before to ‘sleep out’ on Friday 20th November in solidarity with the people we serve, and raise money.

Rather than gather together at large venues, this year we’re asking you to sleepout ‘at home’. You can sleep:

  • in your garden
  • or an (empty) bathtub
  • on a school playground
  • outside a youth club
  • or just somewhere you wouldn’t normally sleep

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

There will be online entertainment and fun on the night – more details nearer the time.

The event is again kindly being sponsored by our friends at Dreams.

You can also take part in the online Big Quiz, whether you're sleeping out or not. Find out more here! 

What you need to do:

  • Register you or your group below to take part in the Big Sleepout 2020: At home and pledge to sleep somewhere other than your own bed on Friday 20th November (or if easier, on Saturday 21st).
  • Only one person from each group need register.
  • You’ll then be able to download the information pack. It contains everything you need to make your Sleepout as fun and safe as possible and will help you raise money. If you need a pack sent to you by post, contact us.
  • Set up a Fundraising Page (either as an individual or as your group) using Virgin Money Giving. The information pack will describe how to do this. If you need help, let us know!
  • Tell everyone you know you are doing the Big Sleepout, encourage them to do it too, and/or to sponsor you.

We want to raise at least £50,000 so we need to know how many people are taking part in the event. We will also be sharing news on the event, updates, helpful advice on how to make the event fun and to raise as much money as you can!

Yes, I want to register for the Big Sleepout ‘at home’ 2020!
