Each night more than 105,000 Australians find themselves homeless – that’s roughly one in every 230 people. It’s an extremely significant social issue in Australia affecting people from all walks of life, and can leave people vulnerable to long term unemployment and chronic health issues including depression, poor nutrition, dental disease and substance abuse problems.
This year our Managing Director, Phil Shaw, is taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout on 23rd June to raise funds and awareness for homelessness in Australia. Phil will join around 1300 CEO’s across Australia roughing it for one night, sleeping outside in the cold with little to no provisions, so he may experience briefly what so many Australians experience every night.
Phil aims to raise $5k for the cause. If you would like to donate and show your support, donations can be made through the CEO Sleepout website https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/ceos/qld-ceos/phil-shaw
