A safe night's sleep for people homeless in Byron Bay.
Sleepbus® is providing much-needed support for individuals experiencing homelessness in Australia, particularly in the Northern Rivers of NSW.
Thanks to our friends at Cunning Stunts, Dharma Care has augmented their fundraising efforts and together donated $10k to sleepbus.
Sleepbus has launched their first service in Byron Bay and are already working on plans for a second service. Dharma Care will fundraise further to help bring services to more cities in our region – Lismore, Uki and Murwillumbah.
This will help ensure that more individuals experiencing homelessness have access to safe and secure accommodation and support.
Dharma Care is also working towards developing a more comprehensive and effective range of solutions to end homelessness in Australia. If you would like to help, you can donate via our project page or at the form below.
As we all know, sleep is essential for good health and wellbeing and addressing the issue of sleep deprivation among those experiencing homelessness can have significant positive impacts.
Sleepbus® is not only providing safe overnight accommodation for individuals experiencing homelessness, but also contributing to a more comprehensive and effective approach to addressing homelessness in Australia.
By filling a gap in services and prioritising the needs of those most vulnerable, sleepbus® is providing a unique form of support that can help individuals improve their physical and mental health and also increase their ability to access other resources and services that can help them find pathways out of homelessness.
While sleepbus® is providing a critical service by providing safe overnight accommodation for those experiencing homelessness, it’s important to recognize that this is just one component of a broader strategy that is needed to address homelessness in Australia.
Ending homelessness requires a comprehensive approach that involves tackling the root causes of homelessness, such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, and systemic inequalities. It also requires providing individuals with a range of services and support that can help them address their unique needs and challenges.
In this sense, the work of sleepbus® is complementary to that of other organizations working to support people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Australia. By working together, these organizations can help provide individuals with a range of services and support that can help them overcome the challenges they face and move towards a more stable and secure future.
Ultimately, ending homelessness in Australia requires a sustained commitment from all levels of government, community organizations, and individuals. By working together and addressing the root causes of homelessness, we can create a more just and equitable society where everyone has access to safe and secure housing.

“As a Northern Rivers based charity, we’ve seen homelessness statistics in our area become some of the worst in the country. As a result, tackling homelessness is our number one priority. Our goal is to provide a range of solutions – for rough sleepers, for families in need of emergency accommodation and eventually, for long-term low-cost accommodation. We are therefore delighted to team up with Sleepbus and Cunning Stunts to provide a safe resting place for rough sleepers in our area. Sleepbus has a unique solution to a difficult problem and we will be expanding our support in the months ahead. “
