What is Sleep Easy?

A staple part of our fundraising since 2010, Sleep Easy has seen more than 7,000 people sleep rough to raise £2M+ for local YMCA services that help young people rebuild their lives.

Each year we ask individuals, teams from local companies, groups of friends and students to sign up, join in and help raise awareness of what is a growing issue in the Black Country; youth homelessness.

Last year alone our emergency Nightstop service has provided more than 1500 beds, and has had to turn young people away due to the increase in referrals.

Where do the funds go?

All the money raised from our Sleep Easy event goes directly to providing safe accommodation for those who find themselves homeless; opportunities for young people to engage in positive activities; work experience and volunteer opportunities; and supporting those in our community who are most in need.

How do I take part?

Our next Sleep Easy event will take place on Friday 7th October at Merry Hill Shopping Centre.

Registration will open soon, if you’re interested in signing up please let us know and we will contact you as soon as you can register.
