C.ex Community Crew
Sleep Out

 

About

Every night 116,000 people in Australia don’t have a safe place to sleep or call home. The number of homeless Australians is a rising issue, with the rate of homelessness increasing by 2.7% each year.

The C.ex Community Crew Sleep Out is an annual community event, raising awareness and funds for local charities working to improve these statistics, and reduce the number of homeless people and people at risk of homelessness living on the Coffs Coast.

All funds raised through the event are evenly distributed by the C.ex Community Crew to our Charity Partners:

Bridging the Gap (Men’s Resource Centre)
Warrina Women & Children’s Refuge

The C.ex Community Crew Sleep Out has raised $284,820.88 to date for social welfare charities working to improve the homelessness situation on the Coffs Coast.

We look forward to holding the event again in 2021 and hope you’ll join us!

 

 

 

Unfortunately the 2020 C.ex Community Crew Sleepout was cancelled due to COVID-19.

We were devastated to have to cancel the event as we know demand for support services has increased during the pandemic and the critical funding the sleep out raises is needed now more than ever. In lieu of organising the event this year, C.ex Group has provided both Warrina Domestic & Family Violence Specialist Services and Bridging the Gap with $20,000 each to assist in delivering their services and projects.
