Vinnies Community Sleepouts

On any given night in Australia 122,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness. Vinnies provides vulnerable people with essential support to rebuild their lives and reconnect with the community.

Together with Vinnies, you have the power to shape awareness and inspire action in your own community and can help make a real difference in the lives of the 1 in 208 people experiencing homelessness every night in Australia.

What is a Vinnies Community Sleepout?

A Vinnies Community Sleepout allows communities to gain insight into the realities of homelessness by “sleeping rough” for one night.

It encourages participants to gain a deeper understanding of homelessness whilst raising funds and awareness within their wider community.

Our work relies on donations from loyal supporters like your community group to ensure we can continue providing services and support to those most in need. Your Vinnies Community Sleepout will play a significant role in contributing to these vital funds.

By hosting, participating in or sponsoring a Vinnies Community Sleepout, you are joining thousands of fellow Australians just like you who want to make a real change in the lives of those experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.

Throughout the year and across the country, schools, community groups and business leaders host Vinnies Community Sleepouts to help rebuild lives. Together, we are doing something about it.
