Cold night in Sydney

17 June 2021

It's time for Sydneysiders to take a stand on homelessness in New South Wales. Over 116,000 are experiencing homelessness in Australia - 28,191 of these in New South Wales. A severe lack of social and affordable housing joined with a range of complex social issues makes homelessness in New South Wales a complex problem, 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 17 June 2021

We've all had to adapt this year, 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.  

Being a Sydneysider, you'll be excited to hear that we'll be back at White Bay Cruise Terminal — complete with the perfect Anzac Bridge view to take in some perspective about life, albeit in frosty, damp conditions.

Stay tuned for more details in February 2021!

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.
