How will Safe Night Space help people sleeping on the streets of Hobart?

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. 

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 pilot program, which will provide a safe, overnight place for people who are sleeping on the streets of Hobart.

It will be 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, we have raised a third of the $450,000 goal to get the program up and running.  

The program will commence at the end of 2019 but not without your help!
