My Sleep Out

Every Month

Are you looking for a challenge? Would you like to help raise funds for the Cathedral Archer Project? Then it is time to get involved!

My Sleep Out is for everyone, so we let you decide how you want to tackle the challenge. You can join in with friends and family or even organise a My Sleep Out event within your community.

By stepping out of the comfort of your home for the night, My Sleep Out gives you a greater understanding of the impact homelessness has on so many people and can make you appreciate what you have that so many others don’t. Homelessness is not a choice, but by choosing for one night to sleep rough you can gain a small insight into what it is like.

What do you have to do?
All you have to do to take part is challenge yourself and others to give up your bed for the night. You could have a camp out in the garden or hire a hall for the night? Feel free to be creative. Many people find the experience insightful and rewarding, getting a first-hand glimpse of how some people live on a daily basis.

My Sleep Out also encourages you to raise funds for The Cathedral Archer Project – directly helping homeless adults in Sheffield. Through this you can help people build their own stable and fulfilling lives.

Sharing your My Sleep Out experience on social media is one of the most effective ways to raise awareness of homelessness - as well as funds for the Cathedral Archer Project. We are encouraging you to take Sleeping Bag Selfies using the hashtag #mysleepout. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to join the fun!

If you are interested in holding a My Sleep Out, then email emily@archerproject.org.uk for a participant pack.
