The Big Bolton Sleepout

7 October 2022

Can you give up just ONE NIGHT to shine a light on youth homelessness.

Grab your sleeping bag and get sponsored to make a real difference to local young people going through hard times. The Big Bolton Sleepout gives you the chance to get together with friends, family or colleagues and be part of a mass sleepout to make a difference.

All participants will receive a lantern, to shine a light for every young homeless person in need of our support.

There will be live music, entertainment and hot food and when the lights go down you will get just a small taste of the situations faced by many of the young people we work with.

What We Do!

BACKUP provide multiple services across Bolton to young people aged 16-25 years who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness. Read here about all the supported accommodation which includes emergency housing, temporary accommodation, short and medium stay supported housing. Also the non accommodation based support work that focusses on mental health, employment support and much more.

Young people can live in more than one Backup service as they make progress and develop more independence prior to moving on completely. The different services are designed to meet various levels and ranges of needs.

Our Events

Every year Backup delivers multiple events for fundraising. Each one is designed to raise awareness and much needed money to support young people who are homeless. Annually we have our core events; Gala Ball, Golf Day and Ladies Lunch. We also have other events that are different each year so that we can have a wider appeal to all.
