Cold night in New South Wales

23 June 2022

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.

When and where?

Thursday 23 June 2022


If you are based in Sydney, you'll be returning to White Bay Cruise Terminal in Rozelle. Our participants in Wollongong will gather at the UOW Innovation Campus while those in Newcastle will return to McDonald Jones Stadium. We welcome all business and community leaders outside of those regions to register and join us virtually on the night by sleeping out in their car, couch or backyard.

These CEOs have raised more
money for our state than any other.

Read about the experience
of one of last year's participants


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.
