Byte Night has now raised over £1.1 million and the money is still coming through - thank you enormously to all those who slept out or donated to the cause.

This money was raised by 1300 sleepers across eight locations in the UK. Belfast, East Anglia, London, Midlands, North West, Scotland, South West and Thames Valley all have an annual Byte Night event in which professionals from the technology and business sector come together to sleep under the stars.

Byte Night fundraising helps to protect young people that do not have a roof over their head. Over 80,000 young people are homeless every year and this needs to stop. We run vital sevices in the UK, such as West Suffolk shared housing and New Horizons in Edinburgh, these services not only provide a roof over their heads but it also gives young people support and life skills to help them get back on track.

Your generosity this year has been amazing however we must continue to support these young people, who through no fault of their own, have been left with nowhere to go and no one to turn to. Please continue to support our work by signing up to Byte Night 2015 (bytenight.org.uk) or donating.

A massive thank you from the Byte Night team.

You did it! You braved the cold and, if you were unlucky, the rain and slept out for Byte Night 2014. It was a great night and as of the 12th November the total stands at £956,626, we are so close to the £1 million and this is thanks to all your effort. Together we can raise more than £1 million to prevent youth homeless and help to keep young people off the streets and back into a life of stability. Thank you for all your support and please help us to raise as much money for Action for Children.

Friday the 3rd of October 2014 will be the 17th annual Byte Night. This year will see over 1,900 professionals sleeping out across 8 UK locations including, Edinburgh, Belfast, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Reading and London, raising £1.3 million to help tackle the root causes of youth homelessness.

In London 300 sleepers will enjoy an evening of entertainment and networking, followed by a night’s sleep in the in the shadow of the iconic Tower Bridge. Last year over 37 people from Dell slept out in London, Thames Valley and Edinburgh to raise over £13,000, generously donated by hundreds of people sponsoring them, so thank you for your continued support to help vulnerable children and young people across the UK at risk of youth homelessness.

Byte Night is the technology industry's annual sleep out in support of Action for Children and for over 17 years technology professionals have been changing young people's lives. Each year over a thousand individuals and teams from across the technology and business community spend a night exposed to the elements in a bid to raise sponsorship and awareness of Action for Children's work to help prevent youth homelessness. Action for Children helps to prevent youth homelessness through early intervention by ensuring that young people across the UK are given the support they need before it's too late.  Thanks to you Action for Children has helped thousands more young people at risk of homelessness to build better lives by providing essential support, accommodation, education and training.
