Byte Night

Action for Children


In 1998, Byte Night started with just 35 sleepers - the idea was simple; utilise the wealthy boom of the technology industry in the late 1990s to raise funds for those less fortunate. The event first took place in Finsbury Square in London and those business people chose to sleep out for just one night as a gesture and an experience to understand the plight of those who have no safe place to call home.

Over the course of two decades, the event grew to invite over 150 Board members and 1500 sleepers to take part in, what is now, the largest national corporate sleepout across 12 UK locations. In 2017, the event reached a key milestone as it raised over £10 million for Action for Children to continue their work to support young people and families at risk of homelessness.
