Boycott Your Bed

Boycott Your Bed is now the UK’s largest corporate sleepout event, with individuals and teams sleeping out to raise vital funds to prevent youth homelessness.

It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then Byte Night has now grown to 12 events and over 1500 people slept out in 2017. Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 20 mass participation charity events and is the largest corporate sleepout having raised over ¬£10 million since the first event. This year Byte Night became “Boycott Your Bed” and asked you to Ditch the duvet, Banish the blanket and Pack the pillow.

On 7th October, we’re asking you to join forces with family, friends or colleagues to raise money and spend the night in the most unusual place you can think of. Over 1,300 people up and down the country joined in the fun, helping raise vital funds for vulnerable children throughout the UK.

Your support allows Action for Children to continue to help thousands of young people to build better lives by providing essential support, accommodation, education and training.

Action for Children does what’s right, what’s needed and what works for children in the UK by supporting more than 370,000 children, young people and families each year. In particular, Byte Night works to support some of the 83,000 young people who are homeless in the UK every year through no fault of their own. Family breakdown, mental health issues and abuse in the home are just a few of the causes which lead to many young people becoming homeless. Action for Children has supported many young people to a safe and happy future. Unfortunately, so many more still need our help.
