About this Event

Greater Change Home Sleep Out - Friday 19th March 2021

For obvious reasons we can’t arrange a big fundraising sleepout this year. But for one night, we are encouraging you to give up the comfort of your bed and sleep out in your garden, shed, garage, kitchen, office, or somewhere different – in a safe, secure way and as Tier Level restrictions permit. (Please adhere to Government Guidelines)

Why a Sleep Out?

The idea behind the sleep out is to gain just a small insight into what it is like to have no home or warm bed to return to at night. Sadly, not having a home is the reality for many people. Many will be spending 2021 alone on the streets, in cars, hostels, squats or other unsuitable accommodation. Greater Change supports people who, with funding, can make long-term positive changes in their lives. We provide support to anyone who is homeless or at immediate risk of becoming homeless. We are incredibly proud to say that 70% of the people that we help get into and sustain long term accommodation, despite the effects of COVID-19 and that nearly 40% have secured gainful employment.

Why now?

Winter is often a particularly difficult time for those experiencing homelessness. In addition, Covid 19 has made life so much more difficult for so many people, leaving many more people at risk of homelessness. Since the Covid pandemic we have seen demand for our service increase threefold and therefore urgently need the support of fundraising events.

Right now many employees are concerned for people deeply affected by the pandemic and want to help people. Additionally, employees can feel disconnected from work communities due to remote working. A group activity such as a sleepout, for a good cause, can really increase people’s feeling of connectedness and community with colleagues.

What is the fundraising target?

By taking part in Greater Change Sleep Out at home, we are asking each person to raise £200 to help our cause. We will help you every step of the way to achieve that. We’ve provided lots of resources to help you achieve your target – including instructions on how to set up and make the most of your JustGiving fundraising page – and our team are always on hand to offer advice and support on the best way to fundraise.

You can help change someone’s life by giving up just one night of comfort.
