Join us sleeping out for one night for youth homelessness. We are calling on local people to come together and get sponsored by friends and family to sleep rough for one night to help young people who find themselves without a secure home to rebuild their lives.
YMCA Hillbrook House in Redhill provides safe and affordable accommodation and support for young people in housing need. Our aim is to help young people to live independently. By sleeping out for one night, you could help get a local young person back on their feet.
Sleep Easy is a fundraising event is designed to raise awareness of what some of the most vulnerable members of our society have to endure. Whilst we don’t replicate the real hardship of rough sleeping, by taking part you will help YMCA East Surrey to support local young people facing housing crisis.
£10 | Adult
£5 | 16-18yrs (must be accompanied by an adult)
19:00 on Friday 6 March 2020 through to 07:00 on Saturday 7 March 2020
We will be holding this year’s Sleep Easy event at:
YMCA Sovereign Centre, Slipshatch Road, Reigate RH2 8HA

Money raised from this event will go directly to helping young people at YMCA Hillbrook House to gain vital life skills such as budgeting, personal hygiene, CV writing, interview techniques, cooking and health and wellbeing to ensure they move on to independent living and gain their self-respect.
Additional funds will be used to help young people into employment by providing interview clothes, travel, money management and support with the all-important interview and subsequent paperwork, for most people, this is pretty straight forward, but for many young people, it is the hurdle that stops them developing!
As well as providing support to young people at Hillbrook, we want to go to schools, raise awareness and intervene to prevent young people under 15 finding themselves in housing need. We mentor and provide counselling for young people and help them to mediate with their families to try and find solutions to get them back home.
This is vital work and without money raised by people like yourselves, much of this would need to stop, therefore, every penny you raise will make a difference.
Our events team is on hand to help you every step of the way and remember every penny you raise will help make a difference to a life in the community. Read more about our tips on fundraising or speak to a member of our team who will be more than happy to give you ideas to help you you raise money.
If you can’t participate, you can still support our Sleep Easy fundraisers by making a donation and quoting ‘Sleep Easy’.
