Why your support is needed.

We have seen rates of homelessness increase with more people sleeping rough in tents and cars, moving from motel to motel, or couch surfing at different places each night. In these situations of crisis, safe, secure, and restful sleep is hard to come by. When people find support and access safe accommodation, clean sheets to climb into of their very own restores dignity and gives comfort.

Domestic and Family Violence was the main cause for help-seeking at specialist homelessness services for 51% of clients.

More than 28,000 young people (12-24 years) will be experiencing homelessness tonight.

On average, 71,000 people seek homelessness support each and every day across Australia.

Your donations create real change.

The difference SleepSafe makes for vulnerable people and the grassroots organisations supporting them is powerful, particularly during a year in which we have seen inflation continue to rise, pushing more people into financial stress and hardship. Sleep kits are not only a practical support for people as they move on from homelessness, crisis, and hardship, but also are a source of comfort and dignity as people receive new, high quality sheets and towels to keep.

Lou's Place

“The women we support are unable to afford to buy themselves sheets, particularly of such a nice quality. The women are so excited to be able to pick out the colour that they want. This makes such a big difference in supporting them to have choice and dignity.”

Your program gives people dignity, hope and contributes to the health and wellbeing of children, young people and parents. We are working with 460 referrals a year – that’s around 1,000 disadvantaged people, including children, single mothers and parents with complex needs who receive brand new towels and sheets when they need it the most
