The Big Sleep Out 2023 is an event to raise awareness of homeless people or those on the brink of homelessness. We aim to raise £100,000 to prevent homelessness by addressing the causes and effects while supporting those who are already homeless in sustainable accommodation.

The cost-of-living crisis is spiralling. More and more people are struggling to meet the cost of day-to-day essentials. Heating and food costs are becoming increasingly unaffordable for many. This is the reality for many individuals and families and, the process of losing their homes and becoming homeless has already begun.

CCP recognises the devastating impact of poverty. We remain steadfast in our mission to support people and communities through the crisis. That's why we've set ourselves an ambitious target of £100,000 to help us fund the essential support we are uniquely placed to offer.

Every pound generated through The Big Sleep Out will go towards assisting people in financial difficulty, with the aim of helping people avoid debt and sustain their accommodation. The donations, in the hands of our support workers and support coordinators, means that we will be able to quickly intervene to offer financial assistance to anyone struggling to meet the cost of essentials. For example, to help replace white goods that break down suddenly, or towards the cost of school uniforms for struggling families.
We are looking for businesses to nominate a suitable representative to join us at Brickhampton Court Golf Complex, and to raise up to £1,000 towards our target.

The money raised will help CCP tackle the causes and effects of homelessness through the following:
• Reaching out to the homeless
• Providing supported housing for 16 – 25-year-olds who would otherwise be homeless
• Debt, housing and benefits advice for those on the brink of homelessness
• Helping to strengthen families who are facing difficulties
• Stocking The Community Pantry for those living in poverty
