SLEEP OUT! 2019

Help someone to leave homelessness behind.

Join Homeless Oxfordshire and Aspire for an evening of entertainment, food and first-hand, lived experiences of homelessness. Be one of 200 people bedding down outside to support people who are homeless, and those at risk of homelessness, across the county. Every pound you raise will help someone to leave homelessness behind.

Date: Saturday 16th March – Sunday 17th March
Time: 5.30pm onwards

Minimum sponsorship: £200 

Please note: Sleepers must be aged 16 or over. Anyone aged 16 or 17 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. This is also a dry event, no alcohol will be permitted on site.

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.

How do we tell rough sleepers that emergency beds are available when SWEP is activated? Charlotte Blake is Head of Services at @HomelessOxford, and she explains all.
