Sleep Out so a young person doesn’t have to.

In 2016, 90 intrepid Rock Trust supporters gave up their beds for the night and slept out for the Rock Trust, and in the month of November raised more than £50,000. Join us this year and help us make our 2017 our biggest and best yet!

Why? The purpose of Sleep Out is to raise money and  awareness of the issues of youth homelessness and NOT to match the sense of danger, hopelessness and hunger which many young homeless people face.

What do I have to do? For just one night, swap your bed for a sleeping bag and experience a night’s sleep outside, on the street, in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre.

How much should I raise? The target is £250 per person. For example, a team of 4 should aim to hit £1000. The sponsorship money raised is absolutely vital for us to maintain our frontline services,  supporting young homeless people to build the personal skills and resources required to make a positive and healthy transition to adulthood, while avoiding or moving on from homelessness.
