Join the Roughtober Community Sleepout

Friday 29th October 2021

If you’ve ever walked past a person experiencing homelessness and thought ‘I’d like to do something but don’t know what’, then Roughtober is for you.

Roughtober is a community sleepout event where people who want to do something for those experiencing homelessness and marginalisation will be sleeping rough for one night to raise money for our services. 

This year the Rough Edges Community Sleep Out event will be held on our floors, couches, balconies and in our gardens. Basically, anywhere but a comfy bed!
