Shelterbag Initiative

What are Shelterbags?

A Shelterbag is a lightweight, waterproof, vented swag which includes a mattress and padded hood. They roll up into a 2kg backpack. The Rotary Club of Seaford has purchased 10 Shelterbags at a cost of $93.00 each for distribution by the Southern Adelaide Family Enrichment (SAFE) Centre at Christies Beach to local people dealing with homelessness. The bedding keeps dry and provides warmth and dignity. Each bag has been labelled and numbered, and the team at SAFE will assess each individual’s needs and then monitor and control distribution.
