The Safe Night Space Program was developed through conversations with real people sleeping on the streets of Hobart.
These conversations highlighted the every day struggles that people who are experiencing primary homelessness face – from finding food and showers, to personal safety – things that most people take for granted.
Prior to the launch of Safe Night Space, we talked to Stacey, Craig and Mick about their experiences, and how the Safe Night Space program would help them.
The Safe Night Space is a program, which provides a safe, overnight place for people who are sleeping on the streets of Hobart.
It is a place to shelter, rest and connect to support such as mental health services, drug and alcohol services, doctors and more permanent housing solutions.
With the help of the community, ans support of the Hobart City Council and state government, over $450,000 was raised to get the program up and running.
