Sleeping rough for one night will never represent the true experience of homelessness. But it is a chance to gain an insight into what that experience might be like.
We’re believers in better at RD. And we know that there’s more we can do to help the ACT’s homelessness crisis.
This year there are four of us taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. Colder and more exposed than in other parts of the city, for one night, our team will be sleeping outside at the National Arboretum. We hope that the experience will offer us a better understanding of some of the realities of sleeping rough.
To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, we need your help. Check out our team page - RD Consulting, or our individual pages:
Will you help us to reach our target?
Any donation, large or small, can make a huge difference to the people who need it most.

Great work RD team! Colin you can finally put that Snuggie you love to good use ;)
Excellent initiative, Colin. There are no easy solutions to this but the provision of a safe shelter and food should be available to everyone in a rich country like ours.
Good work Madeline. This issue is close to my heart. It should be a minimum standard of life in our society that everyone has a save shelter available to them.
You're a rockstar Mads!
Love your work Col!
