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 our homeless charity recipient. 

HOST YOUR OWN
SLEEP OUT EVENT

These are small to medium events (1-300 participants) that are suited for families, friends, community groups, places of worship or smaller, charity run events.

HOSTING A SATELLITE CITY/TOWN SIZED EVENT

Official events are larger in scale (300 - 8000 participants) and have an official event page that is hosted on our Givealittle website with a publicly accessible donation page.

DRIVING PARTICIPATION TO YOUR EVENT

Depending on the scale of your event, you may need to think of some creative ways to encourage people to take part and fund-raise. This will be easy enough if you are organizing something small at home but if you’re hosting a larger event for 100 people or more, this could prove more challenging!

HOSTING YOUR OWN LITTLE SLEEP OUT

These are small, closed events for under 18s that are designed for schools and youth organisations. They follow the same design as Host-Your-Own events.
