Calling all big-hearted bosses, business leaders, owners, and senior execs: spend one night outdoors to help people who need it most. You could change somebody’s life!

CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness and poverty. Our fight is funded with money raised by people like you – big hearted business and community leaders who pledge to sleep outdoors for one night to raise awareness and sponsorship from their business contacts and friends. We put that money to work fighting homelessness and poverty in each of our host cities.

We’re holding CEO Sleepout events in cities across the UK. Will you join us?
