Real Solutions for Unsheltered Homelessness

Join Keith for his conversation with Norm McGillivray, Founder of Beddown.

Norm McGillivray founded Beddown in late 2018 with a view of helping the homeless. Beddown provides access to a bed and a great night’s sleep through an innovative approach - activating pop-up accommodation at night in underutilised spaces. He is partnering with Australia’s largest car park operator, Secure Parking, to pilot and bring Beddown to as many of the 8,000 homeless across Australia through activating and repurposing empty, underutilised car parks and other spaces.

Originally from the UK, Norm’s background has seen him work in the Automotive Industry for Jaguar and Land Rover. In Australia, Norm has worked in Industry, Government and the Not-for-Profit sectors. Now, Norm is challenging conventional thinking to address the massive social issue of homelessness here in Australia as he looks to implement his vision of ‘we believe everyone deserves a bed to sleep in.
