Homelessness Week Launch – “Everybody Needs a Home”

Mon 3 August 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Even before COVID-19 almost 120,000  people were homelessness in Australia every night.

A million Australians are currently unemployed with many facing rental stress and the possibility of losing their home. It’s a crisis but we can turn things around.

See what newly launched mapping says about homelessness in our country, and join a national online discussion about why now is the time for our Parliamentarians to take on the issue and undertake a massive social housing investment program.

Hosted by Homelessness Australia’s Chair Jenny Smith join:

  • The Assistant Minister for Community Housing, Homelessness and Community Services, the Hon Luke Howarth

  • Jason Clare MP, the Opposition Housing and Homelessness spokesperson

  • Cassandra Goldie, CEO, ACOSS

  • Kate Colvin Everybody’s Home national spokesperson

  • David Noonan, Secretary, CFMEU

  • Christine Thirkell, Graduate Member, Peer Education Support Program, Council to Homeless Persons
