Dignity is a human right

Your EOFY tax deductible donation - makes a difference.

Tonight, desperate Aussies are sleeping on the streets in your community.

122,494 Australians are currently homeless every day (ABS 2021).

45,800 people will sleep rough on the street across Australia this year (ABS 2021).

Fact. There are not enough shelters and governments ignore the basic human right to shelter and dignity.

Nearly 37% of homeless people are aged under 25 years (ABS 2021).

In 2018 two homeless men were tragically run over and killed by garbage trucks - one while sleeping in a Brisbane City laneway the other in a Sydney laneway sheltering from the cold. 

Backpack Beds (swags) SAVE LIVES

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

We are not government funded and rely on the support of everyday Australians to help give back safety to people living on the streets. Your tax deductible donation can help someone survive a night on the streets by protecting them from the harsh weather climates that can happen at night.
