Sleep At The ’G and 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.
