HPW Poster 150jpgOn any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people are homeless. Homelessness Prevention Week, observed on 3-9 August 2015, highlights the suffering of homeless people and aims to do the following: 

- raise community awareness and understanding of homelessness?

- increase community connections for those who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness?

- recognise the individuals and groups who help those experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness?

- increase community understanding and connections for those working in the homelessness sector?

The 2015 campaign from Homelessness Australia is themed: "Step Up to End Homelessness" and offers useful infographics, posters, flyers, events and sponsorship opportunities to enable all Australians to help end homelessness.
