The Manchester CEO Sponsored Sleepout is happening on the 2nd November at Emirates Lancashire Cricket Ground and Barnabus are delighted to be one of just 5 charities to be supported by this much anticipated event.

Our Barnabus CEO Yvonne Hope will be taking part to raise awareness and vital funds in support of our work so that we can enable and equip people to move into homes of their own combating the revolving door of homelessness. You can sponsor Yvonne and support the life-changing work of Barnabus on her fundraising page here.

For the last 4 years I've been privileged to lead Barnabus through a fast changing landscape, and to understand more about the structural reasons people become homeless. I'm passionate about helping people to change their lives for the better, and I'm determined to help Manchester create more effective and compassionate solutions to the housing crisis.

Barnabus continues to evolve to meet the changing need of the people we support. I really hope you can join me to ensure our doors will be open for many years to come, as we work through the legacy of Covid-19.

CEO’s from across Manchester and the North West will be sleeping out. Perhaps you or maybe someone you know is a CEO or a Director and you would like to support Barnabus places are limited so we would love to hear from you [email protected] You can also find out more here.

Barnabus have our own Resettlement Tenancy Scheme this is one woman’s remarkable story from rough sleeping and addiction into a home of her own; just one example of how your sponsorship and support can really help us to transform lives read it here.

During a year where all our fundraising events have been cancelled due to Covid 19, we’re really hoping this event will bring in funds and make a massive difference to our work.

The CEO Sleepout organisers have reduced the number of people that can participate this year adopting Covid 19 distancing rules to ensure people can safely participate.
