Get Involved

Sign Up. Discuss and Fundraise.
Help end homelessness.

Just by participating in The Roughin' It Challenge, you can help raise awareness, vital conversations and funds to help end homelessness in Melbourne. 

Live with no bed, one bag and on less than $10 a day. Challenge yourself to experience a small part of the difficulties of being homeless for a great cause!

When you sign up and raise money for the Roughin It Challenge, you’ll be joining a united Melbourne community on a mission to end homelessness in Melbourne.

Every single day, 24,000 Melburnians will have no home and many others are on the brink

The money you raise will also help Launch Housing to help end homelessness in Melbourne and help some of Victoria’s most vulnerable communities.

You will get a small glimpse of what it is like to experience homelessness in Melbourne... and have a creative and fun time trying to survive the challenge!


Find a spot to sleep without sleeping in your own bed

Pick a sleep spot (other than a bed) on property you own or rent. Choose wisely – you’ll be here for a while! Consider shelter, warmth, comfort and safety in your selection.

Work out how you will spend $10 a day to fuel?

$10 doesn’t go far! Careful planning is essential to stay healthy and to ward off those hunger pains.

Pack the essentials you will need to survive in one bag

It's harder than you think – all clothes, equipment and treasured items must fit in one bag you can carry. Some tough choices will be made!

Check out our amazing supporters!
