Event description

Description

Join us as we Sleep Out in plain sight, for all the young people hidden from view.

1 in 4 people affected by homelessness are aged 16-25. In most cases these young people are trapped in temporary accommodation like hostels and B&Bs, or are forced to keep moving from place to place, 'sofa-surfing' and sometimes putting themselves at risk for a bed.

They need our help to be seen.

We have been holding a sponsored Sleep Out in the center of Edinburgh for 26 years. This event does not aim to replicate the miseries faced by those who are forced to sleep rough on our streets. This event is an important opportunity for individuals who want to support us to raise funds for our front-line services by stepping out of their comfort zone and helping us to shine a spotlight on youth homelessness and what we are doing to end it.

'Hidden homelessness' disproportionately affects young people. Their struggles are too often hidden from view. We need your help to raise awareness and funds, so that we can help these young people move on from homelessness and have the futures they deserve.

We ask that participants each aim to raise £250 in sponsorship to help fund our vital work. We recommend setting up an online fundraising page with Justgiving - who have recently removed their fees so that 100% of what you raise goes directly to Rock Trust.

For more information please email events@rocktrust.org

Please note if you register for this event you agree to our Terms and Conditions which can be found on www.rocktrust.org/sleep-out-2019

These will also be sent to all participants by email along with FAQs and event details ahead of event day.

Please note this event is strictly over 18s only.

Our U18 Sleep Out for 12-18 year olds is taking place on November 15th. More information about this event can be found on our website.
