What is sleepbus?
It’s not ok to let women and children sleep on the street and that’s why, with your help, we are doing something about it.
With the dramatic increase in women (and their children) ending up on the streets due to domestic violence, financial strife, family breakdown and other factors, sleepbus will launch a “pink” sleepbus. This will be a service specifically for women (and their children).
Although the traditional service can cater for both make and female guests of all ages, there is a need for women, particularly from domestic violence situations to be in a female only environment for their own peace of mind and mental health. sleepbus recognises this and because the model can adapt quickly to meet the needs of people forced onto the street, a pink sleepbus was a no brainer.
The service remains the same in every other detail to the traditional service, just for women only. In the hope that this will make our female guests even more comfortable while they work out their next steps.
Sleepbus offers a safe place to sleep while transitioning into long term accommodation, as well as links to local support services providing assistance with finances, employment, education, health care and legal advice.
