Why take part?
On Friday October 15th, Students all around Ireland will bed down for the night on their school grounds and help tackle homelessness by raising awareness and vital funds to provide services for those in need.
Take part in Shine a Light Night with your friends, classmates, or school by organising a sleep-out in your school and fundraising together.
At the end of March 2021 there were 738 young people living in emergency homeless accommodation. This represents an 80% increase since August 2014.
With the number of young people becoming homeless increasing, it’s about groups of young people coming together to help other young people who are homeless or most at risk of homelessness.
See below for more information and guidelines on how to organise your school sleep-out and for fundraising tips and tricks!
