Australia Homeless Person’s Week


National Homeless Person’s Week is held in Australia in the first week of every August, It encourages people to become involved to understand homelessness in their local area, as well as the community as a whole.

Homeless Person’s Week this year is from August 4th to August 10th. Homelessness Australia suggests the following as ways to get involved:

• Invite people: politicians, business leaders, community organisations, local media – to see how you work

• Highlight the need for corporate interaction to assist such as providing places for work placements

• Let your community know about the services you provide to people experiencing homelessness

• Highlight the services you provide to help people who are homeless

• Hold a morning tea or special event

• Launch something special: a new program, concept or announcement – especially if it’s additional funding. Invite the media

• Get together with other services in your area and hold an event where you can show how you cooperate with each other. Ideal opportunity to gain additional supporters (corporate and government) and expose other organisations to your work

• Put out a media release alerting your media contacts to National Homeless Person’s Week
