Sleep in

This is perfect for families, shared houses – or anyone that wants a night in their garden.
Not everyone has a stable place to live, and so we invite you to Sleep In at home to recognise this, and to think about young people without a suitable place to live.
Grab your camping gear, make a shelter or just sleep under the stars in your back garden, conservatory or even in your living room!
Use this opportunity to raise awareness and raise funds for young vulnerable people.
We’ll share with you an educational learning pack for kids – thanks to our partners St Basils for this. This includes educational games, learning about homelessness, and even a shelter building challenge!
The education resource has been designed for schools and links to the national curriculum so this is a great way to engage children in education who are not at school due to Covid. 
This can be done at any time that suits you.
How to get involved in a Sleep In?

To get started
  1. Set up a JustGiving page (it’s easy!)
  2. Share your JustGiving page with friends and family to raise funds for young people
  3. Use the educational learning pack that we will send you, to teach kids about homelessness
On the night
  1. Build your tent in the garden or your fort in the living room. Get your marshmallows and hot chocolates ready!
  2. Take photos of your shelters, forts, tents and share them with us!
  3. Enjoy a your Sleep IN
