A Mass Sleepout to End Homelessness in Scotland. For Good.

We’re inviting you to join us and 9,000 others in Princes Street Gardens on the 9th of December for the World's largest ever sleepout. You’ll be joined by some of the world's biggest artists, to sleep in the cold for one night.

By raising funds and working together, we can stop the sticky plaster mentality and get to the root issues with a plan to eradicate homelessness over a 5 year period by providing people with housing, rehabilitation, job opportunities and the support they need to get back on their feet.

We want to make Scotland an example for the whole world to follow. We’re a small country. A nation of innovators. The statistics of homelessness in Scotland are not insurmountable.

We can do this. We just need you.
