Cold night in New South Wales

20 June 2024

It’s time for those in New South Wales to take a stand on homelessness. Over 122,000 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.

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


This year I will be participating in my fourth Vinnies CEO Sleepout, sleeping rough for a night on one of the longest and coldest days of the year to raise much needed dollars and awareness for those experiencing homelessness and disadvantage. Since taking part in my first Sleepout in 2020, my eyes have been opened to the harsh reality that homeless people in our society face on a daily basis. I’m humbled that I’m in a position where in my own small way, I can fundraise and bring awareness for Vinnies to give back to those doing it tough in my community.
