'On the Night' Schedule:
A special programme will be made live here on Friday 14 October.

Shine a light with your friends, family, school, or local club as an individual or join as a team and stage a sleep-out in your choice of location.

The General Public Sleep-Out gives you the chance to join the biggest ever sleep-out, no matter where you are based, to raise vital funds for homelessness. Wherever you choose to take part in Shine A Light Night, Focus Ireland will be here to support you.

In 2022, join hundreds of people across the country who will be sleeping out to help challenge homelessness, and make sure to check out our website to tune in on the night for a special programme with Focus Ireland.

We ask each of our general public supporters to aim for an individual target of €250 to support our essential work. Together, with the support of Bord Gáis Energy and your amazing fundraising, we’re aiming to raise €1.5 million in 2022 to support people experiencing homelessness in Ireland.
