One BIG Sleep Out, the award-winning Simon Community event, is back for 2022 and it’s bigger and better than ever. Proudly sponsored by OutsideIn: an ethical and purpose-driven clothing brand with homelessness at the centre of their values.
This year you can get involved at home or away
HOME: Any night in October, your house.
You can hold your sleep out in your back yard or garden. It can be just you or you can encourage the rest of your household to take part too! You can pitch a tent, create your own shelter, or simply sleep out under the stars.
AWAY: Thursday 20th October, Stormont Estate
Bring your friends, family or colleagues and join us (yes we’ve signed up already!) at Stormont to brave the cold. Swap your bed for a sleeping bag to raise the funds and awareness needed to allow Simon Community to continue delivering specialist support to the thousands of people experiencing homelessness, who pass through their doors each year.
On the night you’ll have a firepit to warm up your cold hands and you’ll be treated to a BBQ, music, hot drinks, until bedtime, and breakfast the next morning.
In 2019 we took part in the One BIG Sleep Out in Stormont Estate. It was without a doubt an experience and although a one night event will never replicate the real emotional and physical difficulties of experiencing homelessness, it does challenge you in ways you don’t expect. We spoke to some at the event who had been homeless and were now big ambassadors for the charity. It was beyond anything we ever expected.
