Vinnies CEO Sleepout 2018

For the second year in a row, ACT Policing is taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money and awareness about the issue of homelessness in the ACT.

On Thursday 21 June, Chief Police Officer for the ACT Justine Saunders and Deputy Chief Police Officer Response John Bourke will be braving the freezing Canberra temperatures as they spend the night sleeping outside to gain some insight into the harsh realities of homelessness, and raise money for the cause.

Canberra has the fourth highest rate of homelessness in Australia and each day more than 1,596 Canberrans face homelessness including an estimated 351 children and young people.

Winter is a particularly challenging time for those Canberrans without shelter, with June temperatures some of the lowest in the country dropping to an average of one degree overnight.

You can show your support, and help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, by visiting
