What is CEO Sleepout?

CEO Sleepout brings business leaders together to make a stand against homelessness.  To date, we’ve funded over 100 hard-working charities on the frontline of homelessness, with money raised at CEO Sleepout events. This has changed countless lives.

Why is it so important?

Imagine if you had no home, no food, and nowhere you felt safe. That’s the nightmare facing more than 250,000 people who are homeless today in the UK. And it’s going up in the aftermath of the pandemic as the cost of living drives people out of their homes and into slum housing or worse – onto the streets.

Recent studies show the shocking truth around homelessness in England:

    • Over 250,000 people in England are homeless and in temporary accommodation
    • Over 61% of adults in England living in temporary accommodation are women
    • Single parents make up 72% of all homeless families living in temporary accommodation, but only 24% of families
    • 1 in 23 black households become homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless, compared to 1 in 83 households from all other ethnicities
    • 24% of young homeless people in the UK are LGBT+
    • More than half (55%) of people who make a homeless application are aged between 16 and 34

By participating in a CEO Sleepout event, you’ll gain insight into the issues surrounding homelessness and what – as business leader – you have the power to change.

You might even be motivated to bake-in policies and procedures that create a demonstrable positive social impact. This is how we move the dial when it comes to encouraging business leaders to adopt responsible business practices.

Sleeping on the ground for a night may be a little cold and uncomfortable, but it will be worth it because you could change somebody’s life, and inspire you to lead with a greater purpose.
