Salvos Sleepout

You're invited to join us as we sleep rough to raise funds and awareness for people experiencing homelessness. At the Salvos Sleepout, you will spend the night away from the comfort of your own home, learning more about the many challenges people experiencing homelessness face daily.

People experiencing homelessness are amongst the most socially and economically disadvantaged in our society. Homelessness leads to increased impact and complexity of existing trauma, substance use and mental ill health. The cost of homelessness to individuals, our community and economy is enormous and increases the longer the individual remains homeless. Homelessness is a result of systemic and structural issues, such as poverty, low income and a lack of safe, affordable housing.

The Salvos Sleepout aims to put a spotlight on this issue and encourage the community to show their support.

Who can join the Salvos Sleepout?

You don't need to be a CEO or own your own business to get involved. But if you want to see an end to homelessness and are passionate about supporting people who find themselves in these situations, then you’re the perfect person to participate in the Salvos Sleepout. By registering, you’re not only standing in support of those who experience homelessness, but you're committing to do your bit to raise as much as we can to support this important work.

Homelessness is on the rise for women in Australia.

It’s a simple, often hidden truth, with a complicated background: more women are finding themselves in unstable environments that range from uncomfortable to dangerous. But homelessness doesn’t define these women, just their situations, and it’s one you can help change.

On Friday 26th August 2022, we’re challenging you to join us as we sleep rough and raise funds to help women experiencing homelessness find A Place Called Hope.
