About the campaign

'Homelessness Counts' is the theme for Homelessness Week 2016. Through this Homelessness Australia is encouraging all to recognise that those experiencing homelessness are a valuable part of our society and must be supported!

Homelessness Week is also over the week before the Census night (9 August) and it is important those experiencing homelessness are adequately represented in Census data.

This data is important as it outlines the severity of the issue across Australia, and also is importnant in demonstrating the need for adequate funding to deal with homelessness and associated affordable housing issues.

How will you help raise awareness of homelessness in Australia, and make sure #homelessnesscounts?

How can you:

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?

This year we want you to take the lead for Homelessness Week.
