Sleep At The ’G may look different this year, but youth homelessness remains the same
Due to recent outbreaks of COVID-19 across Australia and too much uncertainty and risk surrounding mass participation events, MCM has made the extremely difficult decision to not proceed with Sleep At The ‘G this year. The good news is that we're still planning a bit of fun in support for youth homelessness.
Get your phone ready for a Melbourne city treasure hunt! Our clues will take you on a tour of town where you’ll learn and explore and earn points for prizes, while raising awareness and vital funds for youth homelessness.
Our young people still need your support, now more than ever, and we’ll be relying on your fundraising efforts even more.
Everyone has been affected by COVID-19 in some way. We’re also aware that the young people we work with are especially vulnerable at the moment. So, we'd love if you would get involved. We're still in the planning stages, but we'll update this website as soon as registrations are open.
Help put youth homelessness to bed
Join us for this year’s Sleep At The ’G, MCM’s flagship fundraising event where each year, compassionate Victorians come together in support of thousands of young Victorians who are without a safe place to call home.
One night for you could change a whole lifetime for a young person. By raising funds and sleeping at one of the world’s most famous stadiums, Melbourne's holy grail of sport – the mighty MCG, you’ll learn first-hand about the core issues behind homelessness and what we can all do about it, whilst being a part of shaping Melbourne's future.
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 The ’G, 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.
