Sign up to take part in the Sleepout at Oaklands College or at home!


Come together as a community and spend a night under the stars enjoying live music, entertainment…and a bit of a reality check, to see what life is like for young people in Hertfordshire who are facing homelessness this winter. Homelessness has a detrimental impact on an individuals physical and mental health, their employment and education prospects, and family and personal relationships.
Life doesn’t have to be like this, with your help we can fight youth homelessness in Hertfordshire and continue to provide our vital services to those in need. Collectively, we can make a difference and this year we have an ambitious target to raise £40,000 to ensure we can reach more young people in need this winter. 
Each year we are joined by local businesses, youth groups, families and individuals and we would love to have your support this year. Registration is completely free and there is no fundraising target, we just ask that you raise as much as you can. If you are able to raise £350 or over before Monday 18th November, you will be given the choice to receive an exclusive Sleepout hoodie, or for us to purchase one tonne of carbon on your behalf through our partnership with Ecologi as a thank you.


Sleepout packs


Upon sign-up, you will be given the choice to either receive a Sleepout pack on the night or for us to instead plant a tree on your behalf.


The Sleepout packs contain either an exclusive hyh beanie or snood, as well as other goodies to help you through the night! 


Or, through our partnership with Ecologi, you can help us reduce our emissions as a charity and opt to plant a tree. Click here to see our virtual forest.


Sleepout at home


Interested in taking part in the Sleepout but would rather stay at home, or organise your own event? Then why not take part in the Sleepout at Home! Simply register your interest using the sign up form below and our fundraising team will be in touch to provide advice on your event as well as ongoing fundraising support. You will still receive your choice of a fundraising pack posted out to you in advance, or our promise to plant a tree on your behalf, as well as your choice of a hoody or one tonne of carbon if you raise £350 or more in sponsorship.


Will you brave a night in the cold to support young people in our local community who are facing homelessness? We will, and would love to see you there!
