Street Swags Ltd

Street Swags provide water-proof, basic shelter to people experiencing homelessness.

A bag with room for extra belongings, the Street Swag is made of high-quality Australian canvas that is mildew resistant and breathable, it also has a 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.

The Street Swags are made by Australian prisoners who gain TAFE qualifications and skills, improving their chances of employment after incarceration, and helping to break the cycle of poverty, crime and homelessness. The swags are then rolled and packed by students who learn about giving back to the community.

Street Swags are incredibly important while someone is looking for accommodation. Over 116,427* 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.

Camp-Out

As a Swaggie you can simply sleep out of your bed for one night or more during September and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. You can camp on the lounge floor, in the backyard, at a campsite, in the bush, or even in your office.

Sleep-Over

You might even be able to hold your very own Swaggie slumber party to raise money. Have your friends over for a sleep over and have lots of fun while you also help the homeless.

Party (or Barbie, Fun Run, Morning Tea...)!

If a sleep-out isn’t for you, why not hold an event instead? Swaggies can hold any type of event. We've had offers of afternoon teas, barbecues, even a car rally so far! It can have a camp-out theme if you'd like--get those khaki’s and safari suits dusted off and let loose! All money raised will be used to give the homeless much needed swags.
