What is OffTheGrid?

We are inviting you to get OffTheGrid

When disasters strike and power lines go down, families are left vulnerable, wrenched away from comfort, light and electricity.

OffTheGrid challenges you to camp out and turn off all technology to understand what it is like after a disaster.

The rules are simple. No electricity and nothing with an ‘on’ button. How far you take the challenge is up to you, the bigger the challenge the more people sponsor you, the more you will be helping people in crisis – who have no shelter, no home and no access to any power.

The money you raise by taking the OffTheGrid challenge will make a real difference in families recovery. Tents, ShelterKits, cooking equipment, solar lights, hammers, rope and water purification units are just some of the things you can help provide to families who need it most.

You are never powerless to help, will you take the challenge?


Your money will help families to rebuild their lives after disaster strikes.

From family-sized tents and ShelterKits that contain the tools needed to rebuild homes, along with solar-powered lights and water purification equipment, your money will go towards supporting families in crisis.

These are the items that not only help families to feel safe and secure, but to start the process of rebuilding their lives.

We go to even the most remote communities to provide emergency shelter — your support will help us make sure no one gets forgotten or left behind.

It’s not all hard work though — OffTheGrid gives you the chance to switch off and spend quality time with friends and family and away from screens.
