Spend a night under the stars

Every year on Byte Night, in up to 12 different UK locations, hundreds of participants sleep outside overnight to raise funds to help Action for Children give homeless children and young people a safe place to sleep. If you'd like to find out more, visit our Byte Night page and register your interest.

At CEO Byte Night, a small group of senior business leaders come together and spend a night sleeping out in a London location. Through this experiential event, they raise funds and awareness for the thousands of vulnerable young people who find themselves at risk of homelessness every year, through no fault of their own.
