Want to give someone the gift of warmth, comfort, food and hope this Christmas?
Last year we provided over 4,300 winter night shelter spaces, offering individuals food, a safe space to sleep, and much needed friendship. Thanks to your support, one of our night shelters was able to open permanently throughout the winter period. This year we want to do more. We want to provide more overnight spaces, more places to give access to comfort, warmth and friendship, and in more locations across England.

TAKE THE CHALLENGE
SLEEPOUT Transform a safe space into an Advent ‘stable’ and host your own Advent Sleepout Challenge. Your bed for the night could be in a church, a community centre or even in your garden shed. Wherever you choose the aim is to gather together, have some fun, and raise as much money as possible to help transform as many lives as possible.
DUVET The Sleepout Challenge is for everyone, ‘Ditch the Duvet’ means that anyone can join in whether you are 3 or 93. You can raise money by spending a night on the sofa, sleeping without pillows or maybe even ditching your duvet. It's up to you how you choose to spend the night but every penny you raise will help change a life.
EXTREME Take things to the next level with Sleepout Extreme. Could you give up your bed for more than one night? Perhaps camp out in the garden for a week, sleep on the floor every weekend throughout Advent or even spend a night under the stars. If you want to step out of your comfort zone then the Sleepout Extreme is definitely for you. The money you raise will mean that your night of discomfort will provide someone else with a night of comfort.
