Vinnies CEO Sleepout

For the past 16 years, hundreds of business, government and community leaders have participated in the annual Vinnies CEO Sleepout on one of the longest and coldest nights of the year, to gain a glimpse into the daily reality for tens of thousands of Australians experiencing homelessness.

In addition to funding crisis accommodation, food, health care, counselling, employment and support to find a permanent home for thousands of people across the country, Vinnies also helps to provide education opportunities like ACU’s Clemente Australia.

Robert Tonkli, Senior Advisor – Policy and Projects (Office of the Vice President) will be representing ACU by participating in this event. On 17 June, he’ll get a small glimpse into what it’s like to sleep rough. While it won’t be a comfortable night, he says it’s worth it to help make a difference in the lives of those who go without, every night of the year.

As well as fundraising for essential services, participants hear from people with lived experience of homelessness and learn about the factors that contribute to the growing number of people facing housing instability.
