THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE ACTION.
With the dramatic increase of 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 our traditional service can cater for both male 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 our model can adapt quickly to meet the needs of people forced onto the streets, a pink sleepbus was a no brainer.
Thanks to the overwhelming support of the sleepbus family, we have raised the funds required to build the worlds first pink sleepbus and we look forward to sharing the build journey with you up until our planned launch of this service in early 2020. That is the power of collective action.
"Community problems are best tackled collectively. It is this power of collective action that is helping to bring sleepbus® to communities around Australia. Get onboard!"

WHAT’S IN A SLEEPBUS?
Each sleepbus has up to 20 secure, climate controlled, individual sleep pods in twin cabins, each with a lockable door and toilet; everyone is looked after with overnight security and CCTV surveillance; we also have under bus storage for belongings, a cosy place for companion animals and even a twin cabin for our overnight volunteers.
