Sleep out and help tackle the root causes of homelessness

Sleep Easy is a fundraising event that challenges you to sleep out for one night, raising money to tackle the root causes of youth homelessness such as:

  • Mental health challenges
  • Exploitation
  • Family or relationship breakdown
  • Asylum seeking
  • Young people in care
  • Unemployment

It’s a really memorable night that doesn’t seek to replicate the experience of homelessness, but gives an insight into the challenges young people face, and connects local communities all seeking to support vulnerable young people.

Everyone is welcome to join one of our four mass sleepout events on Friday 20 March 2020 – taking place in Guildford, Horsham, Eastbourne and Brighton & Hove. You can sign up here.

Can’t make the date? Hold your own Sleep Easy event! Find helpful tools and resources here.


YMCA enables people to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit. Inspired by and faithful to our Christian values, we create supportive, inclusive and energising communities, where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.
