Looking for a fresh and exciting challenge this year? Are you passionate about making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in Northern Ireland?
Action for Children’s flagship event Byte Night is looking for volunteers to join our Northern Ireland board of senior executives representing an array of national and global companies.

With the support, guidance, expertise, energy and networks of our board members we want to build on our success to date and take Byte Night to the next level.
Byte Night is Action for Children’s biggest annual fundraiser; a national ‘sleep-out’ event which consistently raises over £1 million. This year, over 1,700 like-minded professionals from the technology and wider business arena will give up their beds for one night to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. It all began in 1998 when 30 individuals slept out in London and raised £35,000. Since then, Byte Night has evolved to become the UK’s largest corporate sleep out event with 10 UK locations taking part in 2017. Continue reading
