About CEO Sleepout: our vision, mission and values

CEO Sleepout is a national charity set up to inspire the business community to fight homelessness and poverty. We raise money from big-hearted business and community leaders who participate in events held in cities across the UK. We put that money to work, but funding charities working at the front line of homelessness and poverty.


Our vision is to unlock compassion among the business leadership community, harnessing the powerful voice of business to drive home the message that everyone can live with dignity and nobody should be without a home.

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.

Caring for one another means making sure that all people in our country have safe, stable housing. To make sure that our society shows decency towards all people, we need to address the economic conditions that place people at risk of homelessness. When people are already in poverty or are struggling to pay for housing, all it takes is a single event, like losing a job, a relationship breakdown or a health crisis, for them to fall into homelessness.

Our mission is to use our events to raise money to fight homelessness and poverty, and to empower our network to speak up, speak out, and advocate for more affordable housing, help people get good, stable jobs so they can pay for housing and do what they can, in business, to support a fairer, more equal society.


Our values are:

  • Compassion
  • Purposeful action
  • Camaraderie
  • Clarity
  • Transparency
