Homelessness Week 2020

In 2020 National Homelessness Week will be held from 3 – 8 August 2020

 Due to the pandemic there won’t be a physical launch of the week and the focus will instead be on media and social media advocacy and activism, and will aim to advocate around the economic impact of COVDI19 and the likely increase in homelessness and the need for investment in social housing.  This will be tied to the Everybody’s Home Campaign and the theme is ‘Everybody needs a home’.  This theme reflects on the importance of having a home to stay healthy and well during the COVID19 pandemic and the devastating impact the bushfires have had for people who have lost their homes.

During the week, people will be asked to contact their local MP and get them to sign a pledge supporting investment in social housing.
