Sleep Easy

A staple part of our fundraising since 2010, Sleep Easy has seen more than 6,000 people sleep rough to raise more than £1m for local YMCA services that help young people rebuild their lives.

YMCAs are asking supporters to sleep out, so others don’t have to, by taking part in special Sleep Easy events all over England and Wales.

Get involved by speaking to your local YMCA and help us raise awareness of the dangers of rough sleeping and youth homelessness.

One night can make a lifetime of difference.
