    Watch out for the Street Swags community service television announcements on air now. In this 60-second version, Natalie talks about what it's like to be homeless in Australia and how a Street Swag will help.   

    Natalie struggled with a difficult childhood and was injured badly at work. When Street Swags met with Natalie, she had been homeless for some time. Natalie is wearing clothes donated to her. Unfortunately Natalie passed away six months after the interview.

    Natalie's family loved her very much and did everything they could to help her. They wanted her story to be told and wanted to raise awareness about the increasing problem of homelessness in Australia. According to the latest Census, the number of people who are homeless in Australia is at record levels.

    The canvas in Street Swags uses the very best from nature and modern technology and requires no further treatments after it is manufactured. Street Swags canvas:

    is water proof and is ready to use,
    - has rot and mildew inhibitors, plus UV stabilisers to ensure longer life,
    - is abrasion resistant and water proof,
    - is low fire danger
    - has 35% cotton content so it breathes (this means condensation from body moisture doesn't build up in the swag causing it to become wet.)

    Street Swags canvas is the same canvas the Australian Army and R.M. Williams use. The natural and synthetic fibre mix ensures the  fabric breaths, while also delivering water proof benefits and warmth.

    Street Swags also use high density 30mm foam mattresses which are flame retardant. (Standard: AS/NZS 4088.1 (Int):1993)

    As mentioned above, Street Swags are low fire danger and are non-combustible to cigarette burns (the canvas we use has a wax coating that protects it from burns). Over 30,000 Street Swags have been distributed in Australia and Street Swags have an outstanding safety record.
