What is Byte Night?

Every year in the UK 126,000 children find themselves facing homelessness. We find this unacceptable.
Byte Night is an unforgettable way to help support them – spend one night sleeping on the street so that young people don’t have to.

Share a unique experience
Share a unique and challenging experience, by camping out and spending a night under the stars. The sleepout is a fantastic opportunity to bond with your colleagues, whilst networking with people and businesses.
You’ll also hear inspirational talks from Action for Children young people and service workers whose lives have been changed with the help of Byte Night.
The money you raise will make a big difference, funding our work with young people across the UK.

Help to create a secure future
Behind the homelessness statistics is a real person with their own story to tell. Through the money raised with Byte Night, we can help them be heard and reach the support that they need; by providing essential support, accommodation, education and training.
Last year we helped close to 2,000 young people to keep in safe and secure housing – the money you raise will fund our work with young people across the UK, giving those at risk of being homeless, a brighter and more secure future.

About Action for Children

We support the most disadvantaged children, young people and families across the UK, through a range of practical services and programmes.
With over 550 services that are proven to work, we have supported more than 300,000 people to have a safe and happy future. But many more still need our help.
Who we help and how:

Families in crisis: our children and family centres teach parenting skills, providing a safe place for families to come and rebuild their relationships.

Disadvantaged young people: we provide practical support and counselling for children and young people who have experienced sexual abuse, domestic violence or antisocial behaviour. This we do through supporting their education, employment, training opportunities, and giving them the skills to live independently.

Children who can no longer live with their birth families: our fostering and adoption services create loving and safe new homes for children who have been removed from their family, providing support and guidance for their foster cares and adoptive parents.

Children with disabilities: our disability services provide specialist care and respite for families who are struggling to cope with the additional challenges of a disability.

Young carers: we support children who are carers for a sick family member – by providing counselling, practical and emotional support – and giving them the opportunity to befriend and confide in other young people facing similar challenges.
