Homelessness Week 2nd-7th August- Mark it in your calendar!

By 28/07/2020No Comments

We haven’t let COVID-19 stop us from marking a really important week.

On Monday for the first time, Homelessness Week will be launched in a virtual Town Hall meeting hosted by Homelessness Australia’s Chair, Jenny Smith.

Grab a coffee and some lunch and see what newly launched mapping says about where homelessness is in every federal electorate, and find out how much social housing is needed in your local community.

You can also join a national online discussion about why now is the time for our Parliamentarians to get behind a massive social housing investment program.

I’ll be joining Jenny Smith from Homelessness Australia, as well as Assistant Minister for Homelessness, Luke Howarth, Labor’s Jason Clare, Cassandra Goldie from ACOSS, Dave Noonan from the CFMEU, a representative of the Property Council of NSW, and others to talk about the problem – and why more social housing is such an important part of the

I will also be launching two new ways our partner organisations and supporters like you can keep the pressure up on Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and our local members ahead of the Budget.

The event is free (of course) but you do need to register. I’d love to see a huge Everybody’s Home crowd there!

Before COVID-19 almost 120,000 people were homeless in Australia every night.

A million Australians are currently unemployed with many facing the possibility of losing their home.

It’s a crisis, but we can turn things around so that everybody has a home.

Thanks again for your support of Everybody’s Home.
