A sleepout is a fundraising challenge for your group to build a shelter out of cardboard and plastic and then sleep in it overnight!
All the money raised from this event will go towards our Floating Support and Positive Prevention projects, supporting over 400 young people in crisis with advice, assessments, practical assistance and temporary accommodation and helping to prevent youth homelessness in Coventry.
If homelessness in Coventry is an issue that concerns you and you want to ensure young people aged 16-25 get the support they need to avoid losing their homes or to find safe haven when they do, please consider taking part in this event. It's a great opportunity to meet other local like-minded people like you!
Please register your place by completing the form on this page. It is free to take part, all we ask is that participants try to raise as much as possible in sponsorship to make it all worthwhile!
Over 200 local people registered for this event and over 100 people joined us on the night which is the best turn out we've ever had for this event so thank you so much! It's wonderful to have such local support!
Please see the donate page for ways to send your money in. Please ensure you let us know the money is from the Coventry Sleepout so that it is allocated for use in Coventry and added to the total for this event.
