What is CEO Sleepout?

CEO Sleepout has raised £2.8 million for charities working hard to tackle homelessness in cities across the UK. You can read details of our beneficiaries and funds donated here.

The charity was formed in December 2013 by Andy Preston after two successful sleep-out events. These were held at Middlesbrough FC and Newcastle Utd FC in collaboration with Middlesbrough & Teesside Philanthropic Foundation. Trustees of the charity include Niklas Tunley of business law firm Endeavour Partnership and Abu Ali, Partner at Leathers Corporate Finance. CEO Sleepout is run by CEO, Bianca Robinson.

Why take part?

We believe in showing compassion towards others and making sure that everyone can live with dignity. Yet right now, hundreds of thousands of people in our country are homeless – forced to sleep on friends’ sofas and floors, live in crowded or unsafe places, sleep on buses or in cars or even stay out on the streets. And many more are at risk of becoming homeless.

By participating in a CEO Sleepout event, you’ll gain insight into the issues surrounding homelessness alongside like-minded business leaders. 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.

Although our events don’t come close to what it’s like to be homeless (and don’t pretend to), they do three amazing things: 

1. Raise awareness among business leaders, who often want to do more to tackle the structural causes of inequality after taking part;

2. Raise big money which is put to use among charities at the front line of homelessness and poverty; and

3. Business leaders give up their time, and home comforts, to do something for others – and that’s a great thing.
