Essence is participating in the 2022 Vinnies CEO Sleepout.

On 23 June, David Nicholas, David Radford, Andrew Borthwick, and Jennifer Gillett will sleep outside as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

Despite being one of the wealthiest countries in the world, one in six Australians is experiencing food insecurity and every night more than 100,000 people are homeless. The pandemic has only exacerbated the accessibility and availability of housing for those on the margins.

With rental accommodation in a supply crisis, surging inflation, domestic violence and mental health issues on the increase, homelessness is getting worse and it can happen to anyone.

Food and shelter are the most basic of human needs and together we can help those that have hit hard times.

$50 will help feed a family for a day and $300 will help relocate a person sleeping rough to accommodation services.

Please help us raise funds today by sponsoring our team in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
