The Night at The Timber Yard, Port Melbourne

Arriving at 6pm, you will be guided through a registration process where you will receive a name tag, have your photo taken and have your sleeping quarters allocated for the evening. You will have an opportunity to network with your fellow CEOs and business leaders before the night's formalities and activities.

You'll be joined by many special people on the night people who’ve lived through the harsh realities of homelessness and poverty, as well as volunteers and support staff. Every conversation is another opportunity to learn more about poverty and homelessness in Australia.

What happens?

It’s a Sleepout – but you’ll do much more than sleep. You will hear stories of those who've lived through the harsh realities of homelessness and poverty, as well as volunteers and support staff.

While you can plan to dress warm and use your best sleeping bag, there’s no way to truly prepare for an evening like this. Just know there’s plenty of support on hand and a wonderful community of leaders ready to experience this with you.

 

What to use:

  • Appropriate clothing, a pillow and a sleeping bag.
  • Your phone, tablet and camera to capture the experience and join the livestream.

 

What not to use:

  • Luxury bedding, blow-up mattress, yoga mat or any other camping materials.
  • Fancy food – serve yourself a basic dinner and brekky. You can also have water, tea and coffee.
