It’s the BIG Crawley Sleepout tonight

The Big Crawley Sleepout takes place this evening, Thursday 21 March – a fundraising event aiming to support homeless and vulnerable people in Crawley.



A partnership between Crawley Open House and YMCA Crawley (part of YMCA DownsLink Group), almost 90 people are coming to this mass sponsored sleepout in the centre of Crawley town.

Local businesses, councillors and members of the public are spending a night under the stars to raise vital funds so the two organisations can continue to help the county’s most disadvantaged people.

With West Sussex County Council planning to cut housing related support funding from £6.3m now to £2.3m by 2020/21, and increasing demand for these services, it’s a really uncertain time for charities like these.

Communities are powerful, and the message here is that they will help fight for Crawley Open House and YMCA Crawley. Funds raised will be split jointly between the organisations to help homeless and vulnerable people.  

Crawley Open House provides support and services for those suffering the effects of homelessness, unemployment, loneliness, discrimination, or other forms of social exclusion. YMCA Crawley is part of YMCA DownsLink Group, a charity in Sussex and Surrey committed to helping young people. YMCA Crawley supports over 80 young people in housing crisis, helping with housing and employment opportunities.

Where: Queens Square, Crawley

When: 7pm on Thursday 21 March until 6.30am on Friday 22 March
