Because sleeping rough is tough

Why we do it

Street swags are incredibly important while someone is looking for accommodation. Over 100,000 people are homeless on any given night in Australia. Over 55% of all people are turned away while looking for immediate accommodation and over 80% of families are turned away.

A Street Swag can save a homeless person's life when it's cold or wet outside, providing basic comfort, shelter and shade when they need it most.

Designed for those living on the streets. A bag with room for extra belongings, the Street Swag is made of high-quality Australian canvas that is mildew resistant and breathable. The Street Swag also has a high-density flame resistant foam mattress. Designed for those living on the streets, its discreet appearance and camouflage colours offer warmth, comfort and safety to those who need to be invisible. Since 2005 Street Swags has been giving Australians sleeping rough a leg-up in the form of their very own version of the Australian icon - the swag. Swags give our most vulnerable the opportunity to get a good night's sleep.

Winter Appeal

Donate today and provide warmth and safety.

While we  rug up in these chillywinter days we always need to remember others in our community who have fallen on hard times.This winter we are receiving a huge influx in orders because of the weather conditions. We have agencies, churches, and not for profits all over Australia reaching out trying to get as many swags as possible, because those that are sleeping rough need to keep dry from the current  storms and wild weather. Our new Matilda swag has been designed with a 2mtr section of pullout canvas that can be used as a temporary shade structure during the day to allow the rough sleeper to stay cool and at night it converts to a completely waterproof shelter allowing them to stay dry and warm. This winter we need to look after those in our community that are doing it tough. So Lets again band together and make as many Matilda's as possible and help as many rough sleepers escape the heat and stay dry this Winter.
