Stay Up

Homeless young people in the UK need your support.

We’re challenging you to STAY:UP all night to help us end youth homelessness. Whether you STAY:UP solo or as part of a team, we want you to tackle your tiredness, fight the fatigue, boycott bedtime and whatever you do, don’t fall asleep!

Take on the challenge of a night-time for homeless young people

Date: Choose a date that works best for your team. 

Time: We’re asking participants to STAY:UP between the hours of 8pm and 8am, but if you want to make it even harder to encourage more donations, why not UP the challenge? Bake, game or dance through the night, or complete a different activity every hour! However you STAY:UP, your one night without sleep could help a homeless young person change their life for the better!

Fundraising Target: We’re asking everyone who takes part to raise £100 and up if they can! This could help pay for a week’s stay in a safe and warm Centrepoint room for a homeless young person, where they will be given the support they need to turn their life around.

STAY:UP: Go one night without sleep to help homeless young people.

Whether you’re taking part solo, or as part of a team, we hope you’re #UpForTheNight!

Walk, run or cycle all night, stretch and flex ‘til morning with a 12-hour yoga sesh, or simply stay awake. Whatever you decide to do you'll be helping a young person build a safer, happier future. If you’re stuck for ideas, or need some help to get your fundraising kick-started, download our free fundraising pack below. We’ve got a whole host of resources to help you gain support and spread the word! Remember to tag us @CentrepointUK and use #UpForTheNight!

Every £1 will make a difference

Vulnerable young people were disproportionately affected by the pandemic, and are now facing a debilitating cost of living crisis. When faced with homelessness, many find themselves going nights without sleep because their other options are too dangerous. 

Centrepoint provide far more than just a place to stay. Our in-house team of health professionals empower young people to take control of their well-being and break the cycle they find themselves in; providing much needed, specialist mental health support. Once ready, young people are encouraged to access Centrepoint’s accredited education and employment programmes; helping them to look forward to their futures.
