Backpack beds

We distribute free Backpack Beds to people experiencing homelessness throughout the Northern Rivers region.

Backpack Beds are an award-winning design, providing a weather proof sleeping space that is light and compact enough to be carried around as a backpack. They provide a degree of comfort, warmth and protection from the weather.

They are designed for people living on the streets. Their discreet appearance and camouflage colours offer some safety for those who need to be invisible.

Our Backpack Beds are subject to availability.

Backpack Beds are provided by Backpack Beds for Homeless. Visit their website at backpackbed.org/au
