What is Sleep Easy?

Sleep Easy is a challenge event asking you to spend one night sleeping somewhere other than your bed, all to raise vital funds to help us tackle the root causes of youth homelessness.

Due to the coronavirus, we had to postpone our original mass participation event due to go ahead in March – so we have given it a stylish makeover to ensure it’s an accessible, inclusive and safe event. As such, this October we are asking you to grab a sleeping bag and sleep somewhere other than your bed – a garden, hallway, lounge or other safe space. Children of all ages are welcome – with special activity packs just for them!

There will be an online agenda that you can connect with on-the-night through any internet enabled device– hearing from our young people, staff and wider community.

When and where is it taking place?

Sleep Easy is taking place on Friday 9 October 2020, 7pm onwards – from your garden, lounge or any other safe space!

Last year Sleep Easy participants raised an average of £200 each and we are challenging each of our 2020 participants to set a fundraising target at the same level!
