Swap beds for sleeping bags and brave the winter weather, so that people experiencing homelessness can wake up to a brighter future.

We will all be connected by one aim – to raise funds that will help provide safe shelter and support for vulnerable people who are forced to sleep outside every night.

By taking on this challenge you will not only be changing lives, but often saving lives.

Sleep out for just ONE night and help us raise vital funds and awareness for people forced to sleep out every night. 

Last year, we provided life-changing support to over 2000 vulnerable individuals, who were experiencing, or at risk of, homelessnes; escaping domestic abuse, in recovery from addiction, prison leavers, fleeing war-torn countries, or challenges with their mental health. 

It’s a grim realisation that without support like ours, the life expectancy of a long-term homeless person is just 44 years. 

But, you can help us change that. 

Join us and others as we reflect on those experiencing homelessness and help them wake up to a brighter future. Swap your bed for a sleeping bag and brave the weather for just one night outside. 

The Big Bath Sleep Out isn’t about replicating rough sleeping. Of course, spending one cold night at Alice Park couldn’t possibly come close to the stark reality of being homeless and sleeping on the streets. 

However, if you take on this eye-opening challenge, you will raise funds to help Julian House both rebuild and save lives. 

It may not be your most comfortable night’s sleep, but it will be one of your most worthwhile ones.

We do not accept sign ups on the evening of the event, registration closes 12pm on Thursday 29th February 2024.

What will I need on the night?

⭐ A sleeping bag. ⭐ Cardboard and/or plastic sheeting to be placed between you and the ground. ⭐ Plenty of warm clothes, hats, gloves, and waterproofs. ⭐ Snacks and drinks. ⭐ A torch (one with a red filter is best, you can buy these or make your own with some red film).

I can't get to Alice Park. Can I take part at home / somewhere else?

Yes! We appreciate that not everyone is able to join us, as much as we'd like you to. You are welcome to take part in a place that suits you, as long as you have any necessary permissions. If you do choose to take part at home, please email [email protected]

What happens if the weather is bad?

The Sleep Out is a challenge that will give you a very small insight into what it might be like to sleep rough every night, including cold temperatures and wet weather. We will have some emergency shelter that can be used if needed.

Will I receive any resources for the night, and to help me fundraise?

Absolutely. We will send you regular emails between now and the event to help organise your fundraising and how to sleep out on the night. If you’d like some fundraising tips now, head to our  Fundraising Tips & Ideas page on our website!
