Concern Australia is proud to announce that our program, STEPS Outreach Service, has been selected as one of the finalists nominated for the Auggie Award 2022 in the category of Best Social Impact for its virtual reality experience ‘Walk in my Shoes’.

Walk in My Shoes is an engaging Augmented Reality experience, created using real-life testimonies of young people who have experienced homelessness and were supported by the STEPS Outreach Service. Walk in My Shoes provides users with a deep insight into what it is like to be young and homeless, through an animated 3D environment.

You can follow Stevie’s story now and check out the technology. If you’re on a desktop, click on the poster and scan the QR card with your phone to view her story.
