Byte Night

Last year, Byte Night was on Friday 5th October with nearly 1,500 individuals from the technology and business sector taking part. The event was a huge success and we raised over £1.2 million! We are so grateful to our sleepers who gave up their warm and comfortable beds for one night in order to raise money to prevent youth homelessness in the UK.

Why Sleep out?

83,000 young people in the UK are homeless every year. Action for Children finds this unacceptable. We find the root causes of homelessness and provide intensive support to help families tackle their issues and stay together.

Byte Night is the UK's largest corporate sleepout

"It is enormously inspiring to see so many people sleep out on a cold October night to support the homeless young people. I could never have imagined 20 years ago when I started this event that it would grow to such a significant fundraiser across the UK."

Ken Deeks, Founder of Byte Night

What happens on the night?

Before we send you out into the cold, we warm you up and celebrate all of the Byte Nighters' hard work fundraising throughout the year, with:

  • Silent and live auctions
  • Raffles
  • Quizzes
  • Q&A sessions
  • A chance to meet some of the young people your money helps
  • A fantastic opportunity to network and teambuild

We keep the nationwide Byte Night community connected throughout the night with our Twitter feed so that you can join the conversation using #ByteNight, and share your experiences and photos.
