We are organising our very first Sleepout in Slough for the Homeless to fund the Emergency Winter Shelter which is now in its third year.
Join us, bring your friends! You won’t regret it!
It’s an opportunity for everyone to get involved, to support those who are less fortunate than ourselves by sleeping outside together, for one night.
Slough Sleepout for the Homeless will be a fully managed and secure environment where you can join many others for a night of solidarity as well as a night of entertainment and fun. A life changing night where you will also experience a night in a cardboard box. We can promise you a night you will never forget!
All participants must be over 18 on the day and have read and agreed to the attached Waiver Form.

The Emergency Winter Shelter for the homeless of Slough reopens from the 4th January 2016.
The number of rough sleepers in Slough is not diminishing. The London and Slough Run work to provide some of the very basics to help these people who are otherwise marginalized. However, there is still a critical need for shelter during the coldest months of the year. We can now provide these vulnerable people with a safe, warm, dry place to sleep. We do this with the help of over 100 volunteers across Slough. Together, with teams from the majority of churches in the area, across all faiths, those with no homes are welcomed, given bedding, a place to sleep, a hot meal for the night and breakfast the following morning.
