Sleep At The ’G may look different this year, but youth homelessness remains the same
Unfortunately our much-loved Sleep At The 'G has been cancelled two years in a row due to the COVID-19 situation in Victoria. The good news is that we're still planning a bit of fun in support of youth homelessness.
What's the challenge? Sleep At Home!
Ditch the comfort of your bed to sleep in your car, outside in your backyard, or on your couch on Thursday 28 October, in support of the 6,000 young people in Victoria with no place to call home. To say thank you, we'll be putting on a live stream gig headlined by Dan Sultan to say thank you!
So grab your tent, sleeping bag, blankets, or swag, get the whole household involved and sign up today.
Help put youth homelessness to bed
Camp out in your backyard, on your couch, your balcony, car or floor and sleep out on Thursday 28 October to help put youth homelessness to bed. We know it’s not the MCG, and we know you won’t have the best night’s sleep, but you’ll be CHOOSING to sleep out, a luxury that many of the young people we support don’t have.
To say thank you, we'll also have a live stream gig on the night with various performers including Dan Sultan. It will be a super fun night you won't want to miss.
Remember, one night for you could change a whole lifetime for a young person.
Homelessness crisis: Urgent action is required
Homelessness is usually a result of other forms of disadvantage building to a crisis. Family violence, abuse and mental health are the major drivers into homelessness for young people. But once they become homeless, they face even more dangerous situations; sleeping rough, in unsafe housing or couch surfing. The longer homelessness lasts, the harder it is to for a young person to rebuild their lives. Homelessness becomes a cycle – surviving from one day to the next.
To truly understand the importance of Sleep At Home, you need to hear from the people we’re supporting. After all, there are more than 6,000 young people experiencing the trauma of homelessness every night in Victoria.
