Sleep Out returns in 2013 even bigger and better than previous years. In November 2013, Rock Trust will be holding our flagship fundraising event in Festival Square, Edinburgh. Last year their supporters slept out for The Rock Trust in chilly temperatures, raising more than £15,000. In 2013, they want to see sleepers across the city raise even more to support homeless and vulnerable young people.
Sleep Out is a unique national fundraising event for homeless and disadvantaged young people in the UK. The Rock Trust is in partnership with organisations across the country, including Centrepoint (London), The Amber Foundation (Wiltshire), St. Basils (West Midlands), Llamau (Wales), Keyhouse (Bradford) and St. Edmunds (Norwich and Norfolk) who deal with some of the most vulnerable young people in our society.
You will experience the discomfort of trying to sleep on cardboard boxes on a hard, cold floor during the winter. But while Sleep Out is a fundraising event designed to show solidarity and to raise awareness of homelessness it does not claim to replicate homelessness in anyway.
