A Global Sleep Out to Call for an End to Global Homelessness


For one night, in backyards, hometowns and iconic locations across the globe, we will sleep out in unison to create the world’s largest display of solidarity with and support of those experiencing homelessness and displacement.

Join Will Smith, Dame Helen Mirren, some of the World's biggest musicians and an expected 50,000 people throughout the world by sleeping out under the stars to help those who have no other choice. You will be helping to raise the life-saving funds needed to help a target of 1,000,000 homeless and displaced people in your area and throughout the world.

Host a Sleep Out

Hosting a sleep out can make a major difference to organisations fighting local homelessness in your city as well as allowing you and your community to join a global movement to tackle homelessness throughout the world. By hosting your own event you can also fundraise for a homeless charity of YOUR choice and this organisation will receive 50% of the funds that your event raises with the other 50% going to international refugee focussed causes.

All sleep out events will be given a VT package from the incredible people supporting our campaign, including a video message from A-list actors Will Smith and Dame Helen Mirren, telling a bedtime story to your participants.



You can organise your Sleep Out in your back garden, porch, school grounds, private grounds of a company (with permission) or anywhere else that is safe and legal.
