The Good Night Initiative
Let’s help everyone get a good night’s sleep.
Beddown is once again activating underutilised spaces into safe and secure overnight accommodation for people sleeping rough. Reimagining our welcoming hospitality and turn-down accommodation service for Beddown guests, and taking it to the next level.
In 2024, we launch the Good Night Initiative, kick starting with 1,000 bed nights in vacant hotel rooms for single adults sleeping rough on the streets of our cities and towns.
Working with trusted community organisations who are highly experienced in ensuring people sleeping rough can access pathways to sustainable housing, Beddown is providing an immediate relief response, with health and wellbeing support at its heart.
Our bed nights offer a chance for personal care and grooming to occur, a peaceful environment to consider next steps, and a place to have a good night’s sleep in comfort and safety.
All the while ensuring Beddown guests receive wrap-around support from knowledgeable teams who can link them to general and specialised medical care, government organisations, and other support programs.
But what next? 1,000 bed nights for people sleeping rough is a start. With your help, we can continue to provide this much-needed stopgap between sleeping rough and longer-term housing solutions.
