ABOUT SLEEP UNDER THE STARS
This year, we aim to raise $400,000 to accommodate and support 13 disadvantaged and homeless youth for a year.
Homelessness is a difficult reality for a growing number of young Australians. Young people are forced out of home due to family violence, family breakdown, sometimes even their sexuality. On the 2016 Census night, 38% of Australia’s homeless population was under the age of 25. This is unacceptable.
By participating in Sleep Under the Stars you can personally change this reality. Gather your friends, family and colleagues as every dollar raised will help support and care for youth aged 12 – 24 who are unable to live with their families.
