Big Dorset Sleep-Out

Sleeping Out for a Homeless-Free Future.

In the shadows of towering structures that define our cities, a harsh reality unfolds, often unseen and ignored. It is the plight of homelessness—a persistent societal issue that forces individuals and families into the perils of life on the streets. Imagine a world where the safety and security of a home slip through trembling fingers, replaced by the chilling winds of uncertainty. It is a world where hopes and dreams give way to survival instincts, where human dignity battles against the relentless tides of desperation. In this article, we delve into the complexities of homelessness, shedding light on the stories of resilience, the urgent need for compassion, and the transformative power of collective action.

Amidst the daunting landscape of homelessness, a guiding light emerges—a beacon of hope for those navigating the darkest corners of despair. Julian House, a dedicated charity, stands at the forefront of the battle against homelessness, offering support, shelter, and vital resources to those in need, empowering them to reclaim their lives and forge a path towards a brighter future. Through their tireless efforts and unwavering commitment, Julian House is reshaping the narrative, providing a lifeline of compassion and care to individuals who find themselves without a place to call home.

Prepare to embrace the transformative power of solidarity and empathy as Julian House invites you to participate in their upcoming event, the Big Dorset Sleep-Out. Join this extraordinary fundraising experience that challenges perceptions and raises awareness about homelessness. By sleeping under the stars, you can make a tangible difference in the lives of those who face the harsh realities of homelessness, supporting Julian House’s vital mission to provide shelter, support, and opportunities for a brighter future.

Join our Big Dorset Sleep-out 2023 and stand up against homelessness by challenging yourself, friends, family and colleagues to sleep out for one night and help raise vital funds and awareness for those forced to do so in and around Dorset every night.
Last year we provided life-changing support to over 1,800 vulnerable individuals who were experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness across Dorset and the South-West.

Giving up just one night really could transform the lives of others. The Big Dorset Sleep-Out isn’t about replicating rough sleeping. Of course, spending one cold night in Maumbury Rings couldn’t possibly come close to the stark reality of being homeless and sleeping on the streets. However, by taking on our eye-opening challenge, you will be raising funds to help change and save lives.

Swap beds for sleeping bags and brave the winter weather, so that people experiencing homeless can wake up to a brighter future.

We will all be connected by one aim – to raise funds that will help provide safe shelter and support for vulnerable people who are forced to sleep outside every night.

You can enter as an individual, or with friends and family, or a team from work, school or another organisation. (Under 16′s must be accompanied by an adult at all times).

We do not charge an entry fee, but we do need you to raise as much as possible through sponsorship, so that we can continue to provide vital support to homeless and marginalised men and women across Dorset. You will be amazed at how many people will be willing to sponsor you!

We thank the Rapid Relief Team, who will be returning to provide a small breakfast on the morning of the event and before you head off to your homes.

Take a stand against homelessness. Register now for the Big Dorset Sleep-Out and make a difference.
