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.

The vital funds you raise will ensure all young people are given the future they deserve.


Byte Night is the UK's largest corporate sleepout

In 2017, more than 1,500 employees throughout the technology and business community slept out across the UK as part of the 20th year of Byte Night. The event was a great success and we raised an incredible £1.3 million

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.

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.
