The Big Sleep Out 2023 is an event to raise awareness of homeless people or those on the brink of homelessness. We aim to raise £100,000 to prevent homelessness by addressing the causes and effects while supporting those who are already homeless in sustainable accommodation.

The cost-of-living crisis is spiralling. More and more people are struggling to meet the cost of day-to-day essentials. Heating and food costs are becoming increasingly unaffordable for many. This is the reality for many individuals and families and, the process of losing their homes and becoming homeless has already begun. 

CCP recognises the devastating impact of poverty. We remain steadfast in our mission to support people and communities through the crisis.  That's why we've set ourselves an ambitious target of £100,000 to help us fund the essential support we are uniquely placed to offer.

Every pound generated through The Big Sleep Out will go towards assisting people in financial difficulty, with the aim of helping people avoid debt and sustain their accommodation. The donations, in the hands of our support workers and support coordinators, means that we will be able to quickly intervene to offer financial assistance to anyone struggling to meet the cost of essentials. For example, to help replace white goods that break down suddenly, or towards the cost of school uniforms for struggling families. 

We are looking for businesses to nominate a suitable representative to join us at Brickhampton Court Golf Complex, and to aim to raise £1,000 towards our target. Don't let the amount put you off, all fundraising achieved up to that amount is welcome.

Attending the event and fundraising

Take up the challenge or nominate someone to join us for a night of networking, a warm meal, and the sleep-out experience.

We will not charge to attend the event but ask that you aim to raise up to £1 000 for this initiative.

We would like the experience to reflect a degree on what it is like for those that find themselves homeless. We ask those attending to bring just what will fit into a regular-sized carrier bag. We will provide participants with cardboard for sleeping on and we are looking for a sleeping bag sponsor. However, you will be in the secure environment of Brickhampton Golf Course. There is an opportunity to network and you will receive a hot meal before sleeping out for the night.
