POSTED ON: Monday, 16 May 2011

On Thursday June 16, 2011 I’ll be joining others around Australia who will sleeping out on our streets as part of an event known as the ‘Vinnies CEO Sleepout’. This initiative was developed by St Vincent de Paul Society and is now run annually to raise funds to help our homeless. In Victoria Vinnies operates a range of accommodation and support services for people who experience homelessness including hostels, women’s refuges, soup vans, education programs and family services.

They provide crisis accommodation for over 1,000 people every night of the year and provide meaningful support to help people break personal cycles of poverty through education, recreation and referral programs. The most common reasons for homelessness in Victoria are domestic and family violence. Nearly half of Australia’s homeless are women and sadly, around 30% are children. I’d greatly appreciate your support for this worthwhile cause. It only takes a moment to donate and make a difference.

You can donate here.

Thanks in anticipation of your support. Dean Joel Managing Director

    We are so thrilled that a_space did our school playground. Blackheath School P&C raised enough money to put in play equipment and a_space were really thoughtful and sensitive to our budget. The design, landscaping, project management and installation team were completely professional and approachable through every stage of the process. The children at Blackheath Public School are absolutely thrilled with their new equipment – the teachers can’t keep them off it.

    “This project was excellent, ran smoothly, was well coordinated and completed ahead of schedule. A new rubber surface, some new equipment and shade installation has given this playground a great face lift and an extended life”
