For the last 15 years, we’ve asked our supporters to Sleep Out to help us end youth homelessness. Last year alone our flagship event raised a phenomenal £1million; helping thousands of young people across the UK to change their story.

But 2020 is different. As with so many of our vital fundraising events, Centrepoint Sleep Out events simply aren't possible this year due to the Coronavirus and current guidelines.

That’s why for the first time ever, instead of Sleeping Out we’re challenging you, our amazing supporters, to STAY:UP for homeless young people!

110,000 young people in the UK are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Some are facing serious danger on the streets. Many are too scared to sleep. Centrepoint won’t rest until we change that – and we want you to join us.

On 8 October, we’re challenging you to STAY:UP all night to help us to end youth homelessness.

Whether you STAY:UP solo or as part of a team, the challenge is simple: Tackle your tiredness, fight the fatigue, banish bedtime and whatever you do, don’t fall asleep!

You could cycle, walk, quiz, dance or paint ‘til morning, however you STAY:UP, your one night without sleep could help a homeless young person turn their life around forever.

Are you ready to take on the challenge?
