Do Something About It.
Make a difference in your community and host a Vinnies Community Sleepout. By getting involved you will be raising awareness on the issue of homelessness which affects over 100, 000 Australians. Half of the people affected by homelessness are women; a quarter of people experiencing homelessness are under the age of 18.
The statistics are shocking, but you can do something about it. All the funds you raise will go towards supporting Vinnies homeless services and the crucial work Vinnies is involved in to help people break the cycle of homelessness.
Our Vinnies homeless services focus on person-centred care, and early intervention and prevention. Last year in NSW alone Vinnies provided 257, 287 bed night and 82, 509 meals for people experiencing homelessness.
To help you do this we have a Vinnies Community Sleepout information kit which is a step-by-step guide to staging your own Sleepout. If you have any further queries please contact us as below or visit our Go Fundraise site for more information and to start your own event.
