We are very excited to be working alongside local and international charities for the World’s Big Sleep Out. On 7th December thousands of people around the world will sleep out in unison to create the World’s largest display of solidarity with and in support of those experiencing homelessness and displacement. The event will take place in Trafalgar Square, offering you the chance to sleep out at an iconic London location whilst raising vital funds to support homelessness across the globe. 

50% of the funds raised from the event in Trafalgar Square will be split between The Big Issue Foundation and four other local homelessness charities; Thames Reach, Depaul UK, The Connection at St Martin’s, and Homeless Link. The other 50% will go towards charities helping some of the 68.5 million people displaced globally – who have lost their homes through war, natural disasters, or extreme poverty. These charities include the Malala Fund, UNICEF USA and the Institute of Global Homelessness. 

Registration is now open for this global campaign and we’d love for you to join us!
