Turning Tides Big Summer SleepOut 2022

Big Summer sleepout

Make a stand against homelessness

To mark 30 years, Turning Tides are hosting a Big Summer SleepOut. Make a stand against homelessness on Saturday 18th June by spending one night under the stars at Worthing Football club. Show your solidarity and raise vital funds to support the life-saving services provided by Turning Tides.

The Big Summer SleepOut will be held at the Worthing Football Club (The Crucial Environmental Stadium, Woodside Road, Worthing, BN14 7HQ) and will last from 6 P.M. – 6 A.M. the following morning.

By coming to this event, people are making a stand against homelessness in their community and gaining a deeper connection with what it means to sleep rough. Too many people still sleep in car parks, doorways, shelters or anywhere they can just to feel some semblance of warmth and safety. Together we have the power to make a difference and support people on their pathway out of homelessness.

In the last 12 months, Turning Tides have supported record numbers of over 900 people. People can help to show their commitment to try and ensure that no-one faces homelessness alone.

Big Summer SleepOut event information

The event will include the opportunity to hear stories from those who have experienced homelessness and frontline keyworkers who support them. Participants will also receive a light evening meal, breakfast, and unlimited hot drinks. Then together, they will spend the night within the grounds of Worthing Football Club to make a stand against homelessness.

Places need to be booked in advance and cost £20 per person. Funds raised go directly to support people experiencing homelessness. There is a £15 Early Bird discount for the first 50 people, which expires on the 31st May.

Participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship and can receive lots of support with this from the Fundraising Team. Participants must be 16 and over to attend, and those aged 16-18 must be accompanied by an adult who has also booked a place.
