SleepSafe’s COVID-19 Emergency Response.

The COVID-19 situation is complex and shifting daily, and it’s unfortunately placing even more strain on already stretched homeless services. From 24th April 2020, when you support SleepSafe by making a donation online, funding will be directed towards essential needs and emergency housing support, with a focus on providing meals.

Our goal is to equip our charity partner, StreetSmart Australia, with funding that will assist in the areas where it’s needed most. So, for every $10 raised, we will now be providing a meal to someone in need.

It’s our intention to return to providing sleep kits when our charity partner and local community organisations feel the time is right.

Every night, over 116,000 Australians are without a safe and secure place to sleep.

You can never underestimate the simple benefits of having clean bed linen, a towel, a shower and a bed to sleep in for the night. SleepSafe is a non-profit initiative created by StreetSmart and Sheridan, raising much needed funds to help support people who are experiencing, or at risk of experiencing homelessness.

In partnership with our suppliers, we've produced sleep kits, each containing one towel, a flat and fitted sheet and a single pillowcase. To date, we've provided over 6,000 Australians with sleep kits through local community organisations. We’ve raised enough funds to supply an additional 3,864, which will be distributed in the coming months.

Our Story

ABOUT SLEEPSAFE

SleepSafe is a non-profit initiative by Sheridan and StreetSmart, raising much needed funds to help support those without a safe and secure place to call home.

Your donation will contribute towards a sleep kit. With every $15 raised, a complete sleep kit including a towel and a sheet set, is provided to someone in need. All sleep kits will be sent to the shelters that need it most, providing financial relief and allowing for funding and donations to be diverted to other areas of need.

 “You can never underestimate the benefits of having clean bed linen, a fresh towel, a shower and a bed to sleep in for the night. The worst day of someone’s life can turn into the first day of the rest of their lives with the simple comforts of home and a safe night’s sleep.”

— Paul Gould

Group General Manager, Sheridan
