What is the NSW Vinnies School Sleepout?

NSW Vinnies School Sleepouts provide a unique insight into the complex issues that people experiencing homelessness face; issues often overlooked and misunderstood by the wider community.

How can you make a difference to homelessness?

Vinnies School Sleepouts raise important funds for Vinnies' homeless services and raise awareness about this important issue. As a school community, you are uniquely placed to help shape and influence awareness and opinions about social justice issues such as homelessness.

Our members and volunteers help over 540,000 people experiencing disadvantage and marginalisation every year, but we couldn't do it without support from people like you. All money raised by your school will be used within your local area, so together we can ensure we are actively contributing to your community.

Please join us today and start organising your own Vinnies School Sleepout.
