In Australia there are over 116,000 people experiencing homelessness on any given night. Homelessness Week aims to raise awareness of the impact of homelessness on 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.
The theme for Homelessness Week 2022 was To end homelessness we need a plan, reflecting the need to support discussions about what a national plan to end homelessness in Australia should include.
The Homelessness Week Supporter Pack, includes social media tiles, web banners, email signatures, posters and messaging to support your advocacy.
During Homelessness Week 2022, individual and organisations across Australia helped to raise awareness by sharing stories, thoughts, ideas and concerns about homelessness and housing on social media. Search the hashtag #HW2022 and follow Homelessness Australia on Twitter.
Other ways to get involved including speaking to your MP, supporting the Everybody’s Home campaign, and hosting an event. Find more information in the Homelessness Week Supporter Pack.
On Monday August 1, from 12-1.30pm AEST, Homelessness Australia hosted a virtual event to launch Homelessness Week, including the new Minister for Housing and Homelessness, the Hon Julie Collins MP.
