Help us make a real impact for the most vulnerable people in Wales in November 2017!

 

Keep in touch for more information about Sleepout here:

We will be announcing details about Sleepout 2017 during March.

 

 Email: sleepout@llamau.org.uk for more information and if you've got any questions!

Why do we need your support? To help us raise much needed funds to enable us to continue to provide a lifeline to those who need our services in Wales.

What do I have to do? We're asking you to raise money from your friends and family. Then, in November 2017, for just one night, you'll swap your bed for a sleeping bag and experience a “good night’s sleep” on the cold, hard floor! We’re raising awareness for youth homelessness but we don’t aim to replicate it!

How much should I raise? We're asking you to raise a minimum of £250 per person or for example, a team of 4 should aim to hit £1,000 between you. 

The sponsorship money raised is absolutely vital for us to maintain our frontline services in supporting young homeless people in Wales, giving them the practical skills they need for a brighter future.

What will your support help us do? Demand for our services is increasing all the time, while we face severe funding cuts, making it much harder to find enough money to provide them. Taking part in Sleep Out means that YOU can help us to continue this support to vulnerable people in times of real crisis.

From advice about how to get help, family mediation to rebuild broken relationships, specialist supported accommodation, unique pre-vocational training and help to find work, Llamau offers a comprehensive range of services designed to prevent homelessness now & in the future.

Entry price: When you register, you’ll be asked to pay a £25 non-refundable deposit, which helps cover the costs of the event, and secures your place. The entry price does not include your £250 minimum sponsorship total. 

We believe no young person should ever have to experience homelessness. You can help us to eradicate youth homelessness.

It's not all about sleeping!

Sleep Out is supposed to be challenging but don’t worry, it’s not a snooze-fest! We’ve got a great night lined-up for you:

  • You’ll get a tasty hot meal & a drink
  • Entertainment from up & coming Welsh musicians & comedians
  • A goody bag with all your Sleep Out essentials
  • A raffle & auction with some great prizes!
  • Breakfast served from 6am
  • A chance to network with some of Wales’ finest local businesses & entrepreneurs (in a very informal setting!)

You can (try to) sleep soundly, knowing that there are safety marshals on watch all night.

Sleep Out is a unique national fundraising event for homeless and disadvantaged young people in the UK.

As an active member of the End Youth Homelessness coalition, Llamau, through Sleep Out, aims to bring a Welsh voice to the UK’s most pressing social issues experienced by our homeless and vulnerable young people.

You will experience the discomfort of trying to sleep on cardboard boxes on a hard, cold floor during the winter. But while Sleep Out is a fundraising event designed to raise awareness of homelessness and the funds to help us tackle it, it does not claim to replicate homelessness in anyway.

Thank you for showing your support by taking part in and raising money for Sleep Out!.

Sleep Out is a challenge event you won’t want to miss out on! But don’t just take our word for it! Have a look at our previous Sleep Out success
