Where the money goes

Although we’re national, we love local. We are community driven and are committed to supporting local charities in all of our host cities, as well as charities that work hard to combat poverty and homelessness the length and breadth of the UK.

We operate a very lean charity and until September 2017, CEO Sleepout UK has been run only by Andy Preston and his PA. We’ve now taken on one staff member to support our future growth.

We make sure that the majority of money raised is distributed to local charities to fight homelessness and poverty within a few miles of each CEO Sleepout, as well as those charities that work nationally.
