Homelessness Week 2020

National Homelessness Week will be held from 3 – 8 August 2020

Due to the pandemic there won’t be a physical launch of the week and the focus will instead be on media and social media advocacy and activism.

Aiming to advocate around the economic impact of COVID-19 and likely increases in homelessness, along with the need for investment in social housing it will be tied to the Everybody’s Home Campaign .

The theme is ‘Everybody needs a home’ and reflects on the importance of having a home to stay healthy and well during the pandemic and recovery from the devastating impact of bush fires that resulted in people losing their homes.

During the week, people will be asked to contact their local MP and get them to sign a pledge supporting investment in social housing.
