Change Starts Here in Victoria

23 June 2022

Big changes start small – with just knock at their door, a nutritious meal or simply being prepared to listen to someone’s story. From one annual event that’s been held for more than a decade now, we have raised more than $10 million to support people experiencing homelessness in communities across Victoria. We all play a role in helping break the cycle of homelessness and poverty in Australia, and that's why #ChangeStartsHere with spending a night out in the cold at the Vinnies CEO Sleepout.

Thanks to our incredible fundraisers and supporters, we have reached our goal of $1,500,000.

Let’s see how much more we can do, because the more we raise, the more impact we can make for people experiencing poverty and homelessness.

Together, let’s try and raise $1.75m

"Connection to community is at the core of what it means to be human. Homelessness can break that connection in every sense. The #CEOSleepoutAU reminds me of the duty we have to restore a sense of belonging among those caught in the potholes of life's random walk."
