StreetSmart believes everyone has the right to a safe and secure place to call home
StreetSmart is an organisation dedicated to providing funding for local grassroots organisations helping people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
StreetSmart run innovative fundraising campaigns working closely with the hospitality industry. Funds are distributed locally to where they were raised, so businesses involved see real benefits within their own communities.

“We are long-term supporters of StreetSmart and the DineSmart campaign. We get approached to participate in lots of charity work, but for our team, the work StreetSmart does with local homelessness services to address real gaps in funding is what sets it apart.”
CafeSmart runs on the first Friday of August every year and unites roasters, cafes and coffee drinkers to help support their community over a cup of coffee.
