CEO Sleepout

Thank you to the 18 sleepers who slept out at CEO Sleepout in Paternoster Square this year.

Thanks to your incredible fundraising we have so far raised £99,384. This will go towards keeping vulnerable young people off the streets, giving them a secure future and enabling them to reach their full potential.

Meet our sleepers


Why do we do it?

  • 1 in 3 homeless young people will attempt suicide

  • 1 in 5 homeless people are care leavers

  • Up to half of all homeless young people have no qualifications

I want to take part

I am proud of the incredible work Action for Children is doing and am delighted to be doing my little bit in leading the CEO Sleepout. It’s important that the UK’s top CEOs use their positions to highlight issues affecting our young people and help create opportunities for young people, who don’t have the security of a family or role models in their lives, to reach their potential and fulfil their ambitions. I appeal to CEOs from all sectors to join me to sleep out – just one night can change so many lives.
