Safe Space Launceston

Working in partnership with Hobart City Mission, the Salvation Army and with funding from the state government, Safe Space Launceston will provide a dedicated 24 hour/7 day per week facility for rough sleepers in Launceston. The service will offer a 16-bed facility, and continue being open to the public during weekdays, with limited access on weekends. Social distancing and cleaning regimes will be in accordance with Tasmanian Public Health regulation.

Available Services

Through this service, those experiencing homelessness will be able to:

  • Safely spend the night under cover;
  • Access food, information, showers/laundry facilities and support during the day;
  • Access Phone service (as many services are moving to tele services);
  • Access the Internet (as many services are also offering tele-conferencing);
  • Be given an opportunity for social interaction and the ability to establish connections (moving towards formally linking in with the Housing Connect and other allied support systems);
  • Access up to date information and advice on how to stay safe, and keep others safe during the COVID-19 pandemic; and
  • Access a supportive environment that encourages the rough sleeping cohort to limit their movements within the community.

To book a bed for the night or speak to our Safe Space staff please call 6335 3099.
