80% of women who street sex work are homeless. By giving up your time and luxuries for one night you’re highlighting the reality of their daily struggle.

It’s free and easy to sign up. All we ask is for you to raise a minimum of £350 due to the popularity of the event and the limited spaces available. With passion and drive, we know you can achieve this!
Feel uncomfortable asking people for donations? Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of ideas that will build your confidence and make it much easier (and enjoyable) than you ever imagined! Make the most of your Sleepout challenge by following our top tips to fundraising success here.
Homelessness is not always visible. Especially for women who you may never see sleeping on the streets and who you are unlikely to find in night shelters. Their homelessness is restless. It can involve night after night of not stopping, constant moving, jumping into car to house, to car to house, to just keeping going. By taking part in Sleepout 2018, you can help these women leave the dark streets behind.
This is one night of your life. The money you raise will help extremely vulnerable women find a way out of street sex work and could change their lives forever. In the last year, your support helped 37 amazing women escape the streets and 139 finally found a place called home/roof over their head. Incredible stuff! But we must not forget those who remain. Be part of the solution. Change the story.
