2022 UniSQ Vinnies Community Sleepout

There are more than 116,000 Australians who find themselves homeless each night of the year. Just under half of these are women; a quarter are under the age of 18. Join us at the UniSQ Vinnies Community Sleepout on Friday 29 July 2022 and experience what it is like to be homeless for a night.

The University of Southern Queensland Vinnies Community Sleepout is an education based sleepout event, with activities designed to broaden awareness of homelessness and social justice issues. 

The event has two parts:

  • 5.30pm to 9pm activities
  • 9pm to 6.30am movie, sleepout and big breakfast

All funds raised through the sleepout are directed to the Vinnies Darling Downs housing conference - for use in our local community.

The event includes a light dinner (soup kitchen style), activities and of course, the chance to experience sleeping out in Toowoomba weather conditions. 

All members of the University students, staff and local community are invited to participate. Below is further information on registering or supporting the event.
