Cold night in New South Wales

17 June 2021

It’s time for those in New South Wales to take a stand on homelessness. Over 116,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness right now – 28,191 of these are in New South Wales. A severe lack of social and affordable housing joined with a range of complex social issues makes homelessness a complex problem in our state, but you can be part of the solution. Sign up to the Vinnies CEO Sleepout today, or sponsor a CEO, to raise crucial funds for people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.

Our goal


When and where?

Thursday 17 June 2021

We’ve all had to adapt over the past 12 months, and it’s created a wonderful opportunity for the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to involve leaders from far and wide. That’s why the 2021 event will be a unique mix of the traditional sleepout with a way for virtual attendees to join in too.

If you are a Sydneysider, you’ll be excited to hear that we’ll be back at the White Bay Cruise Terminal on 17 June 2021. Those in Wollongong will once again gather at the UOW Innovation Campus while those in Newcastle will return to McDonald Jones Stadium. Any business leaders outside of these areas are welcome to register and join us in 2021 as a virtual participant.

In 2020 I participated in my tenth Vinnies CEO Sleepout sleeping rough for one night to help others less fortunate. I am honoured to have been a Vinnies CEO Sleepout Ambassador since 2013. I feel it is important to raise awareness of homelessness and funds for Vinnies homeless services as I would like to see homelessness eradicated across Australia.
