Our goal


Help break the cycle of homelessness

Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. That’s why Vinnies is raising money to provide people experiencing homelessness and people at risk of homelessness with vital access to food and accommodation. We also provide education, counselling, employment and health services to help people overcome poverty in the long term.

Support Australians who are doing it tough by donating to the Vinnies CEO Sleepout today.

In 2022, participants raised $9.6 million and made a huge impact. That means Vinnies can support the community by providing more:
