2016's Big London Sleep Out is taking place on Friday 25th November. Join us for an eye-opening evening as we bed down in St John's Church, Waterloo, home to one of The Big Issue Foundation's distribution points. The Big Sleep Out is not a full ‘homeless experience’ but it’s certainly an insight into over 3,500 people in England face every night. Places are limited, so register now to join us for a unique opportunity to abandon your comfort zone and show support by raising vital funds for The Big Issue Foundation.
The evening will feature live music and entertainment. It will also be an evening of education and inspiration as you hear about The Big Issue Foundation from former and current Big Issue vendors in our interactive panel discussion, and in conversation, before we bed down for the night.
The church will be cold during the night and sleeping on the hard floor won’t be comfortable, so we definitely recommend that you bring some warm clothes and a sleeping bag to wrap up in and some cardboard to sleep on!
You can sign up as an individual, or why not get a team of friends or colleagues together? Registration is just £20 per person if you sign up as a team of 5 or more! It’s a great place to meet likeminded people, share an unusual experience and do something to support people living difficult lives across the capital and beyond. We're asking participants to raise just £200 per person to take part in this unique challenge. The funds you raise will provide vital support to vendors like Amy on their journeys aways from the streets.
Register now to take part in The Big Sleep Out as there is limited availability. This charity event provides an interesting and thought provoking insight into the lives of people who are homeless and will be a night not to be missed.

The Big Issue Foundation
The Big Issue Foundation’s mission as a UK charity for people who are homeless or vulnerably housed, is to connect vendors with the vital support and personal solutions that enable them to rebuild their lives; 'to determine their own pathways to a better future.
The Big Issue offers people who are homeless the opportunity to earn their own money; a livelihood. The Big Issue Foundation, as an independent charity for people who are homeless, offers vendors the opportunity of a life. We work tirelessly alongside our vendors to help them deal with the issues that have caused their homelessness or have developed as a result of hitting the streets.
