The Safe Space program is a safe 24 hour service for people who are experiencing homelessness in Hobart.
The program launched in December 2019 in partnership with The Salvation Army, and has already changed the lives of people living on the streets of Hobart.
It is a safe and secure place for people to find shelter from the elements, rest and link with support services such as Housing Connect, Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drug doctors.
The day and night program are run out of two separate locations. The day program is located at the top of Hobart City Mission’s offices at 50 Barrack St, Hobart. The night program is run out of the YouthARC space on Collins St, which is provided free of charge by the Hobart City Council.
For many people the Safe Space is a first step towards moving off the streets and is a vital service to those experiencing homelessness in our community.
Referrals to Safe Space are made through Housing Connect on a daily basis. To contact Housing Connect call 1800 800 588.
Safe Space also has locations in Launceston and Burnie. Referrals to these services can also be made by calling Housing Connect on 1800 800 588.
The Safe Night Space Program was developed through conversations with real people sleeping on the streets of Hobart.
