Sleep rough so others don’t have to

YMCA Dartford will be running Sleep Easy in Dartford’s Central Park on Friday 16 March. Sign up at or contact for more information.

Join in, spend a night out and help us beat youth homelessness.

Bring your friends and join the team in Dartford’s Central Park. YMCA Dartford will provide the box, you provide the sleeping bag! Will your box have The Box Factor? You’ll have an opportunity to customise your box on arrival before the grand judging ceremony… prizes available for the most creative.

With hot drinks and snacks throughout the night, we will finish with breakfast rolls in our café at the YMCA on Overy Street before departure around 7am… can you make it through the night?

Every year YMCA provide beds for around 500 young people at risk of homelessness across the Thames Gateway – 56 of these are in Dartford. By sleeping out for just one night you will raise awareness of this growing problem across our region as well as raising vital funds that will mean we can reach even more vulnerable people.
