Mission Australia Winter Sleepout


Sleepout this winter and help a family that is homeless


As winter approaches it's a bleak outlook for individuals and families who don't have a place to call home.


More than 105,000 Australians are homeless on any given night; including thousands of families.


Over the past 28 years, Mission Australia's Annual Winter sleepout has made a significant difference to Australians in need. But our work is far from done, which is why we need your help!



How you can help


Sign up today to host your own Winter Sleepout. 



Whether it is in your backyard, your office, your school hall or even on your living room floor, Winter Sleepout is about getting your friends, family, colleagues and community to raise vital funds towards Australians having a safe place to sleep this winter.
