Backpack Bed for Homeless operates solely on public donations.

Backpack Bed for Homeless is a national charity, however, our program is not government funded. The sad reality is - the only barrier stopping us from handing more Backpack Beds and Fire Retardant Sleeping Bags to folks you see on the street is more fundraising.

Backpack Beds (swags) SAVE LIVES

Backpack Bed for Homeless partners with 800+ homeless services across Australia to distribute our study proven Backpack Beds to street sleeping homeless without shelter.
