Every night, more than 105,000 Australians don’t have a place to call home. That’s one in every 200 people.
Northside is proud to support Homelessness Australia as they call on supporters and friends to support this year’s Homelessness Week.
Homelessness Week is a national event held in the first week of August each year and calls on Australians to raise awareness of people experiencing homelessness and the issues these people face. This year Homelessness Week falls between 1-7 August 2016.
In 2016, the theme of the Week is #homelessnesscounts, which highlights that the lives of people experiencing homelessness are important. It also relates to the upcoming ABS Census and the importance of people experiencing homelessness being included and identified correctly in the Census count.
