Housing is a human right. But on any given night, close to 1 in every 200 Australians are homeless. Of those that are homeless, 40% are under the age of 25! For some, homelessness is a one-off occurrence. For others, it is a prolonged experience.

Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. For over a decade, supporters of the Vinnies sleepout have provided essential support to tens of thousands of Australians. This year, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Join the USQ community on Saturday the 20th of July and experience what it's like to be homeless for a night. It will be one of the coldest nights of the year so we encourage you to rug up... but not just in boring jumpers, no, come dressed in your craziest pj's and onesies because we're inviting you to the biggest sleepover of the year!

In the lead up to the event, we are aiming to raise vital funds for St Vincent de Paul to aid in their work to provide support programs, beds and meals for those in need.
