ROUGH SLEEPERS

Tonight, as you sleep in your bed, 1 in every 200 Aussies are homeless. This number of people sleeping rough either on the streets, in shelters/crisis centres and by means of couch surfing has seen an astonishing increase in the city of Melbourne over the past couple of years, plunging many people into a devastating cycle they may struggle to break.


This 30 minute documentary tells the story of a few of these inspirational Melburnians, as well as exploring what we, as individuals and a society, can do to help those in need.
