Sydney Uni Young Vinnies Winter Sleepout 2023

Sydney Uni Young Vinnies Winter Sleepout 2023

Student Life Grants

Get ready for an unforgettable experience as Sydney Uni Young Vinnies joyfully welcomes you to our much-awaited annual Winter Sleepout!

This Winter, Vinnies Community Sleepouts will take place across NSW to raise awareness of the realities of homelessness and funds for Vinnies homelessness services. Each night, over 120 000 Australians experience homelessness — 50% being women and 25% under 18 years old. Our Winter Sleepout aims to increase awareness of the increasing number of homeless Australians, raise funds for Vinnies homelessness services (this year we are raising funds specifically for Vinnies Van Services) and to educate people and break down misconceptions of people experiencing homelessness.

On the night there will be: dinner, hot food/beverages, games (including Kahoot!), guest speakers, a movie and much more! A Brekky Van-style breakfast will also be provided the next morning. So please come join us for a memorable night on Friday 1 September at 5:30pm at The University of Sydney Quadrangle at our very own Sleepout!

All funds raised will be donated to Vinnies Van services. Vinnies Vans are outreach services that provide meals and snacks, blankets, toiletries, hot beverages, and, most importantly, companionship and referrals where needed to people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
