Swap your briefcase for a sleeping bag for one night

CEO Sleepout is a charity set up to fight homelessness and poverty. Our fight is funded with money raised by executives who sleep outdoors for one night to raise sponsorship from their business contacts and friends. We’re holding events across the UK in 2016 and are recruiting people now – who are willing to help us fight poverty.

I Want To Take Part
So far over 560 executives have raised a staggering £791,000 for Homeless causes.

What is CEO Sleepout?

CEO Sleepout was officially formed in December 2013 by Andy Preston after two successful CEO Sleepout events were held at Middlesbrough FC and Newcastle Utd FC in collaboration with Middlesbrough & Teesside Philanthropic Foundation. Trustees of the charity include Niklas Tunley of business law firm Endeavour Partnership and Martin Houghton Brown CEO of homelessness charity De Paul UK.
