Every night across Australia, 105,237 people are experiencing homelessness.
Thank you for your generous donations to Team Indue and the Vinnies CEO Sleepout. With your help, Team Indue raised more than $15,000 for Vinnies homeless services.
This money will go towards crisis accommodation options for families and individuals at risk of homelessness, food vouchers for people who would otherwise go without food, and personal care packages containing everyday essentials.
One of Team Indue members Holly McGregor shared her highlights from the evening:
“What was particularly compelling this year was the role-playing we undertook. We were each given a persona and a life situation we had to navigate. For some of us we experienced the frustration of being sent from one department to the next, being bounced back and forth by bureaucracy and process – we could only imagine how hard this must be for the homeless to try and navigate as they are already operating under such stress. This exercise helped to bring home the problems we have with managing our homeless situation and how Vinnies is working so hard to try and simplify the process and break down barriers for our homeless population.”
Each year around 254,000 people seek help from homelessness services
