We’re challenging you to spend one night sleeping somewhere other than your bed, all to raise vital funds to help us tackle the root causes of youth homelessness.

Taking place on Friday 26 March, it’s easy to get involved! Just grab a sleeping bag and sleep somewhere other than your bed – such as your garden, lounge, hallway or other safe space.

When and where?

Friday 26th March.

Your sofa, bathtub or a tent in your garden. Anywhere but your bed!

About Sleep Easy

Are you willing to swap your pillow for the platform?

Sleep Easy is YMCA’s national fundraising sleep out event which sees members of the public sleep rough for a night so others don’t have to. All funds raised go towards our homelessness prevention and crisis support work.

Last year, 341 young people received 2-1-1 and crisis support from YMCA Newcastle such as overcoming abuse, accessing hardship grants or finding accommodation.
