Immediate Response Shelter
- Compact Shelters Pty Ltd

Compact Shelters Pty Ltd developed the immediate response shelter after recognizing there was a huge gap in aid relief between tents/tarps and permanent transitional shelters . Spending a lot of time with charities as Oxfam GB it became apparent that a highly innovative but yet simple shelter should be created that could be semi permanent, collapsible, durable and low cost.
Compact Shelters ethos is revolved around simplicity of design and the adoption of alternative materials for humanitarian uses.
The shelter pops up in under two minutes and has been well received working with charities as IFRC and Oxfam.
