Homelessness week

Raising awareness of the impact of homelessness on Australia

In Australia there are over 116,000 people experiencing homelessness on any given night.

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.

This year, Homelessness Week is taking place from 1–7 August 2022.

Please check this page for updates on the Homelessness Week theme, events, and resources. In the meantime, browse our events calendar for ways you can get involved in ending homelessness.
