Our Code of Conduct

The interests and reputation of Sanctuary Trust and any other connected organisations are of paramount importance. We ask you not do anything, or conduct yourself in any manner, which is not in keeping with the values of the charity or could bring Sanctuary Trust into disrepute.

We ask you to meet the following Code of Conduct for our Sleep Out. If you go against it, we may ask you to leave the event:


Alcohol is not permitted at the event. If you bring or consume alcohol at the Sleep Out, you will be asked to leave.


Any participant believed to be using or under the influence of illegal drugs will be asked to leave the event and the police will be called.


Smoking is not allowed in any area of the car park. Smokers will need to leave the building and use the designated smoking areas, as directed by the event organisers.

Respect for others

Please be respectful of fellow participants who are trying to sleep. If you are chatting, please be mindful how the sound carries. If the organisers assess that the noise level is too high, you will be asked to move to another area.


Only use designated toilets –  directions will be signposted. Signs will direct participants down the north stairs or south sets of stairs.

Emergency evacuation

In the unlikely event of an emergency, you must follow directions given by the event organisers.
