What is the SLEEP OUT!?
The SLEEP OUT! is Oxford’s only mass-participation sleepout event, organised by Homeless Oxfordshire and Aspire. Guests will spend the night sleeping outside with only a roll mat, pillow and sleeping bag. Although far from the reality of sleeping on the streets, we hope the event will give participants the opportunity to be part of the solution to the local homelessness crisis.
Why should I SLEEP OUT!?
Across Oxfordshire, hundreds of people are homeless right now, and more are at risk of falling into homelessness. Oxford ranks 6th in the country for the highest numbers of rough sleepers and over 100 households approach Oxford City Council each month to register as homeless. Homeless Oxfordshire and Aspire work with hundreds of vulnerable adults across the county each year, supporting them to leave homelessness behind. By spending the night outside, you'll be making a real difference in people's lives.
