Helping Rough Sleepers, TAS

Helping Rough Sleepers, TAS

In Tasmania our generous supporters at Workskills Tasmania and Anaconda have provided resources so our Street 2 Home workers can hand out packs of useful items to rough sleepers during winter.

The Street 2 Home program is a housing, support and health service targeted at the most vulnerable homeless people. 

Our workers have regular contact with people sleeping rough who often face multiple barriers to permanent housing, such as mental health issues, physical or intellectual disabilities or substance abuse. 

The packs include swags, sleeping bags, waterproof jackets with hoods, polar fleece jumpers, winter socks, beanies and gloves. They enable us to provide better support for homeless people together with the other services we offer them, including access to safe and affordable long-term accommodation.
