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.

SmartCare – Supporting Frontline Workers

Frontline workers have done an amazing job caring for some of our most vulnerable and marginalised people through the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s crucial that workers have good support for their mental and physical well-being. Through our SmartCare initiative we are funding important support programs including mental health first aid courses and counseling, self-care initiatives, care packs, vouchers, new staff equipment, and team building sessions.

COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

In August we provided five grants from our COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. These grants were to support SmartMeals recipients operational costs. This reflected that the program requires our charity partners to use 100% of grants to purchase meals, sandwiches and other food products from our the cafes/restaurant partners. These grants will help with the coordination of the program, staffing and deliveries etc.
