Vinnies School Sleepouts provide a unique insight into the complex issues that people experiencing homelessness face; issues often overlooked and misunderstood by the wider community.


Vinnies School Sleepouts will provide you with an opportunity to experience what it is like to be homeless by ‘sleeping rough’ for one night. Your participation raises awareness of the realities facing people experiencing homelessness. Hosting an event allows you to fundraise for Vinnies and these funds will be used to assist Vinnies in providing vital services to help combat this insidious issue.

The Schools Sleepout Kit contains everything you need to know to get started including guidelines, activity suggestions and information about your responsibilities as a Vinnies School Sleepout event organiser. To register your event and further information and resources please head to our GoFundraise page .

For more information and resources on homelessness please see the Resource page on the School Sleepout website.
