What is CEO Sleepout?

CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness. Our fight is funded with money raised by people like you: big hearted business leaders. To date we’ve funded over 100 hard-working charities on the frontline of homelessness, changing 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 the 250,000 people who are homeless today in the UK. 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
