For Sleep Easy 2019 we are looking for 200 people to stand with us (well, sleep with us!) outside on the night of Friday 22 March 2019.

Sleep Easy 2019 will take place at five venues across our area and we’re hoping to raise another record amount. Can you help us?

It won’t be warm and it won’t be comfortable. But we know that the money we raise will make a huge difference to many young people. Watch the film above for a taste of last year’s event.

When and where?

Five chilly Sleepouts will take place simultaneously in Brighton & Hove, Guildford, Horsham and Eastbourne. The Sleepout in Crawley will take place on Thursday 21 March.

Each event starts at around 8pm and finishes with breakfast then packing up to go home by 8am.

Last year we raised over £60,000 with 171 ‘rough sleepers’ taking part. Can we match that this year? It’s a huge challenge, and we need your support to succeed.

Sleep Easy 2019 is happening because of young people like Leaha. Read her story here.

“I had fears that the YMCA would be just another hostel, but after moving and settling in I found it really is more of a home. I haven’t been here long but the staff have already shown me how to achieve my goals independently.” 

The money we raise through Sleep Easy 2019 will help many more young people change their lives and move forward.

The YMCA provides much more than just a place to sleep. We offer support and opportunities so that the young people can achieve their full potential. Our aim is that they all belong, contribute and thrive.

All money raised through Sleep Easy 2019 will be used to change young lives. This could be through purchasing interview clothes or course materials, funding meaningful activities, or buying a bike so a young person can take up a work opportunity.

We want to see lives changed for good so please help make Sleep Easy 2019 a success!
