The experience of homelessness can be defined in many different ways and stretches across many cohorts of people, including people living in crisis accommodation, rough sleeping or those in temporary housing. Being homeless can mean more than not having a roof over your head and is not just one typical experience. Every Australian deserves to have a home.

Mainstream housing providers are grounded in Western cultural norms, and their incompatibility with Aboriginal worldviews leads to Aboriginal people being coerced into cultural compromises within the housing sector, either to be offered housing or to remain in their current house. For housing and support to be effective, culture must be front and centre of design and delivery and be valued as a birthright by the western system.
Homelessness Week is an annual event to raise awareness of the impact of homelessness in Australia via national and local community events, including providing information on the importance of housing as a solution and educating communities on how they can make a difference.
Homelessness Week 2022 took place from Monday 1 to Sunday 7 August.
