The Lifewise Big Sleepout is a fundraiser to tackle the growing issue of homelessness in Auckland. There are more than 100 people sleeping rough in Auckland's city centre alone, and thousands of vulnerable people living in unsafe or unsuitable accommodation.
Lifewise is an Auckland-based community social development organisation, who develop new ways to solve challenging social issues and work with families, older people, people with disabilities, and people at risk of homelessness to turn people’s lives around. Lifewise’s roots trace back to over 150 years ago within the Methodist Church of New Zealand, and the organisation has since changed and developed to meet the needs of Aucklanders as the city grows.
