Name of Event: Sleep Out 

Volunteer Role:  This is Centrepoint’s 13th annual Sleep Out event in London and for the first time we will have two Sleep Out events in the same week and same location, on Tuesday 13 November and Thursday 15 November. Sleep Out in London will be attended by 1,250 supporters swapping their beds for a sleeping bag to give homeless young people a future by raising £820,000. 

There are two sets of volunteering opportunities this year:

  • Helping to set up the site so that it is ready for our 1250 participants, this involves decorating the site with branding, hanging signage, laying out sleeping bags, and setting up merchandise stalls.
  • Helping out at the live event makes a huge difference to the participants experience with various roles such as stewarding, greeting, and registration.

  • Learn about the live events industry
