The Big Sleep Out 2022 is an event to raise awareness of homelessness or those on the brink of homelessness. We aim to raise £20,000 to prevent homelessness by addressing the causes and effects while supporting those who are already homeless

We would like to invite you to experience homelessness, by spending the night under the stars at Ewood Park, home of Blackburn Rovers Football Club. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we urge you to get involved in raising critical funds to help tackle homelessness.

The experience will give you the chance to reflect a degree on what it is like for those that find themselves homeless. We ask those attending to bring just what will fit into a regular-sized carrier bag. We will provide participants with cardboard for sleeping on, however, you will be in the secure environment of Ewood Park Stadium. There is an opportunity to network and you will receive a hot meal before sleeping out for the night.

We know that the Big Sleep Out is a tough challenge. It gives those who get involved an insight in to how difficult it is to sleep on the streets, and helps them to better understand what those experiencing homelessness face on a daily basis.

The cost-of-living crisis is spiralling. More and more people are struggling to meet the cost of day-to-day essentials. Heating and food costs are becoming increasingly unaffordable for many. This is the reality for many individuals and families and, the process of losing their homes and becoming homeless has already begun.

Blackburn Rovers Community Trust recognises the devastating impact of poverty. Using the power of football for good, we remain committed in our mission to inspire change in our community. Our target of £20,000 will help us fund the essential support we are uniquely placed to offer and support NightSafe in tackling youth homelessness

Every pound generated through The Big Sleep Out will go towards assisting homelessness and people in financial difficulty.
