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.
