Sleep Out

We are FULLY BOOKED for Sleep Out 2019. Thank you for helping make this happen. Please register your interest for next year’s event here.


We are hosting the first ever Sleep Out in Croydon Boxpark on 24 March 2019, kindly sponsored by Croydon BID.


For one night, we ask you to give up your warm, cosy beds and sleep out to support homeless people into independence.


The mission? To brave the night-time elements and cold, hard floor and raise funds to help homeless people off the streets and into positive, independent lives.


Want to take action against homelessness?! This is the event for you.


The details

The Sleep Out will begin at 9.30pm in the Boxpark bar, with registration, a cuppa and a few inspiring words from some of the people we work with who have lived experience of sleeping on the streets. At 11pm we will take to the main floor and begin our night challenge of ‘Sleeping Out’.


By 6.30am Monday morning our mission will be complete. Breakfast baps at dawn and a finisher’s photo will mark our grand finale and we will leave sleepy headed and satisfied knowing we have actively taken action in the fight against homelessness.


Without Evolve and amazing supporters such as you, there would be an additional 700 people sleeping out on the streets.


The challenge will not truly represent the horrible dangers and harsh reality of what it is to be street homeless, but by taking part you will actively be supporting people who are homeless into happy, fulfilled independence, like you or I.

And more than that! You will be reiterating the need for homelessness to be put firmly on the agenda. Not just for one night, but until we end the cycle of homelessness for good.


So what do you say? Take part and raise a suggested minimum of £175 per person in sponsorship. There is a registration fee of £20 to cover the costs of the event. And that’s it. So what are you waiting for? Join us and Sleep Out. Croydon Boxpark 24 March 2019.

Here’s where your fundraising will go:

At Evolve we help homeless people off the streets and into positive, independent lives.

We start with quality accommodation. Next, we provide 360° support, leading to independence.

Every day, our team of key workers and expert staff, support homeless people with everything from life skills, budgeting, mental health to work and education.

With these expertise and vital support services, we help homeless people to completely rebuild their lives.

Your fundraising will go directly to our counselling service and work + learning program, so we can help homeless people with their mental health and to find pathways to work or education.

Ultimately, this will lead the way into a positive, independent life.

78% of homeless people that come to Evolve move on into fulfilled independence.

Sincere thanks to Croydon BID for taking an active stance in the fight against homelessness by sponsoring this event. 

Many thanks to Croydon Boxpark for joining our mission to end homelessness by hosting this event.

Thanks also to Tempus Facilities Management who are sponsoring the Sleep Out goody bags and Caridon Properties who are sponsoring the Sleep Out mugs.
