Depaul helps people who are homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Sleepout Stars

Last year, by holding a school sleepout or "sleep-in", hundreds of children raised thousands of pounds to support Depaul UK's work with homeless and vulnerable young people.

Our President, Sir Trevor McDonald, said: "By becoming Depaul Sleepout Stars, your pupils can make a difference to the lives of others, find out more about youth homelessness and raise vital funds for this most worthy cause."


When: World Homeless Day. During October school children nationwide will be joining the Sleepout Stars and taking part in the annual Depaul UK School Sleepout

Where: Your school playground or hall

Why: Every year 80,000 young people in the UK experience homelessness and this number is on the rise. Depaul UK believes every young person should have a safe place to call home and our Sleepout Stars are helping make this happen.

What is a Sleepout? A sleepout focuses attention on just how hard life can become for a young person who has exhausted other options and finds themselves sleeping outside. We suggest your Sleepout takes place in your school playground or fields.

What is a Sleep-in? A sleep-in could take place inside your main hall or gym. This could be a great way of raising awareness as most youth homelessness is 'hidden' from sight, with young people sofa surfing with friends or family members until their welcome wears out.
