Stand up against homelessness.  Sign up now!

Challenge yourself to sleep out for just one night with us in Alice Park or in your own home and help raise vital funds and awareness for men and women forced to sleep-out every night.

You will be joining us, and hundreds of others, across Bath and the surrounding area taking action against homelessness.

Last year we provided life changing support to over 1,800 vulnerable individuals who were experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness across Bath, Bristol, and the South West. It’s a grim realisation, that without support like ours, the life expectancy of a long-term homeless person is just 45 years!

The Sleep-Out isn’t about replicating rough sleeping. Of course, spending one cold night in Alice Park couldn’t possibly come close to the stark reality of being homeless and sleeping on the streets. However, by taking on our eye-opening challenge you will be raising funds to help change and save lives.

You may get cold and and even wet, but the next morning you’ll be able to go home, have a warm bath, a nice breakfast, chat to family and friends about your experience, or, just catch up on lost sleep.

The big difference for people who are forced to sleep rough is that they don’t have that option.

By taking part in our sleep-out, you are helping to support people off of the streets and into safe and secure accommodation. You are helping to save lives!

“It was good to experience the sleep out with a group of friends with the blessing of a warm home to return to at the end of it. A single night sleeping out is absolutely nothing compared to the reality and hopelessness of sleeping out every night without a prospect of breaking the cycle. It made even more thankful of my own home life.”

Ian Bolton

“It was great. I had a good time with dad stargazing. But it was also very sad as the homeless people do this everyday and in every kind of weather. I would have been scared if I was on my own, and most do this every day. I wouldn’t like to be hungry and not know where my next meals are coming from.” 

Abi Pritchard (12 years old)

“We were all quite humbled by how tough it was and how hard it must be having to pack up your belongings each day and find somewhere to sleep each night. We have talked about it since and with people in the office. I think the sleep out brings a huge amount of awareness of the plight of the homeless in Bath.”
