What Can You Do? 

By participating in Sleep In your Car, you are helping to raise awareness and the crucial funding to prevent and support young people experiencing homelessness.

 

1. Educate yourself

Think there are no people experiencing homelessness in your area? 

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has released 2016 Census data showing more than 100,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness — and revealing they live in virtually every part of the country. These statistics are based on completed Census forms. We believe these numbers are just scratching the surface. If you had no place to call home, would you take the time to fill in the Census form?

2. Educate your community 

Myths around homelessness prevent us from designing policies that address it properly.

By bringing your friends and family along to a Sleep In Your Car event near you, you can help educate others about the issue of homelessness and learn to dispel damaging stereotypes. 
 

 

3. Advocate
 

Decision makers won’t act on homelessness unless they know how much it matters to the people they represent. Join the campaign for a better, fairer housing system for everyone. To take action and find out more, visit: https://everybodyshome.com.au/
