We believe everyone should have a safe and secure place to call home
It is a basic human right
Ending homelessness will take a whole of community response

Through innovative campaigns we enable and empower communities
to raise vital funds and awareness
to bring about change for people experiencing homelessness or at risk.

We keep it grassroots, we keep it local

We seek out, support and partner with small organisations and projects, in the communities where funds are raised.

Recently Funded Projects

We currently support over 400 refuges and shelters around Australia, working closely with each of them to ensure sleep kits go where they are needed most. Check out our interactive map to see just where SleepSafe grants and sleep kits are distributed in your local community. To date we have raised $976,000, equating to 64,000 sleep kits that are distributed to over 420 community organisations.

Children who grow up in poverty are more likely to be behind in school. The 2016 Child Well-Being study found a strong association between going to bed or school hungry and less school attendance and satisfaction. Food or clothing deprivation was associated with low school engagement. The Australian Research Alliance for Children & Youth has found that when kids grow up in deprivation, they are more likely to be negatively affected throughout their lives. So far we have raised over $80,000 to support grass roots organisations around Australia that aid students and families in need.

That is a wrap! in 626 days we raised and distributed $1,385,583 to 150 charity partners while providing 259,665 emergency meals. This initiative has been an ‘all of community’ response to help keep fellow Australians safe during a once in a generation pandemic. From the very beginning we have been fortunate to have funding partners who could see what we were doing and achieving, and backed us in.
