Could you ‘rough it’ for one night to prevent homelessness becoming a reality for vulnerable young people in Sheffield?
Brave a cold winter night to help raise thousands of pounds for vulnerable young people in Sheffield. Since they began 40 years ago, Roundabout have helped thousands of young people at risk of homelessness in our city by providing shelter, support and life skills to those aged 16-24.
What’s the Sleep Out?
We’re asking you to brave the cold winter night by swapping your bed for a sleeping bag and a cold hard floor in a warehouse and raise as much in sponsorship as possible to help us support young homeless people in Sheffield.
Be inspired by young people supported by Roundabout and hear how youth homelessness is an issue in our city and how you can help. Enjoy some food and entertainment during the evening, then at midnight it’s lights down and into sleeping bags as the challenge begins!
Participants are encouraged to raise £150 each in sponsorship, to help us end youth homelessness.
An event like this cannot truly replicate what it is like to be lonely, frightened and homeless, but it can help make a real difference. Your £150 could buy a Home Starter pack for a young person when they move into their own tenancy.
What should I bring?
As the event is in November and in a huge warehouse, it’s going to be very chilly! We advise all participants to make sure they wrap up warm, wear plenty of layers and bring along a sleeping bag and blankets.
Please note, participants must be aged 16 and over. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration is £20 per person and participants are encouraged to try and raise £150 each (or more!)
