HELP PROVIDE A SAFE NIGHT’S SLEEP TO VULNERABLE AUSTRALIANS
COVID-19 has brought great hardship on many people. Unemployment, domestic violence and rental stress have seen immense pressure put on our already overstretched homeless services across the country. Many people are turned away without support because they simply do not have the resources to house any new clients. In many cases these organisations have seen fundraising stop altogether.
Often people turning up seeking support at homeless shelters or refuges arrive with no belongings. The simple act of receiving their very own SleepSafe Kit, including a single bed sheet set and towel, can provide enormous comfort and security to someone in the middle of a crisis. We want to provide this support and help ease the strain on these vital services by providing SleepSafe Kits.
This August all online donations of $15 will provide a SleepSafe kit to someone in need.
“We often receive feedback about the challenges of trying to make a new place feel like home, especially for children. Sleep kits not only help to create a sense of safety for our clients, they also represent new beginnings and are a wonderful starting point to rebuilding their lives.” Emma, Family Violence Support Worker, Women’s Liberation Halfway House
