Story

Thanks for dropping by and supporting us. 

Here at Civica we're passionate about mental health and helping the outcomes of young people; so we're delighted to once again raise money for and support our partner charity Action for Children through its annual sleep-out.

Action for Children has been instrumental in protecting and bringing lasting improvements to the lives of children and young people, especially during the pandemic. With many families reduced to breaking point over the last few months, the charity has supported them to cover the cost of basic essentials, like food, nappies, cleaning products and gas and electricity.

We want to ensure that Action for Children can reach even more children, young people and families after the pandemic too. That's why we're asking you, your family, friends and housemates to Boycott your Bed.

On Friday 21st August 2020, our people will be finding an unusual place to sleep in their homes - whether that's pitching a tent in the kitchen, getting cosy in the bath or finding a sheltered spot in the garden.

With the sleep-out even more accessible and inclusive this year, we're inviting as many of our people to get involved and organise fundraisers to meet and hopefully exceed our £10,000 goal. 

So if you're in and will be boycotting your bed, sign up here:

Let's be part of a national movement to give children the safe and happy childhoods they deserve.
