National Homelessness Week 2018

“Ending Homelessness Together” is the message for all Tasmanians during National Homelessness Week, 6-12 August 2018.

Led by Shelter Tasmania, the Southern Housing Sector have partnered with Local Government and other service providers to create a program of events that call on the community to get involved.

Throughout the week, a video and sound scape will be installed at locations around the Hobart, Glenorchy and Clarence City Councils providing a platform for people who are experiencing homelessness to share their story.

The projections will highlight the most current facts about homelessness in Tasmania and the different ways people are affected by it.

Homelessness can happen to anyone and it is important that we get the message out to those people who are experiencing homelessness for the first time so that they can get the help they need.

Colony 47 is the Front Door for housing and homelessness services in southern Tasmania and together with our collaborative partners; Catholic Care, Anglicare, Salvation Army and Hobart City Mission we are working to ensure that people in Tasmania have access to housing that is affordable, safe, secure and appropriate to their needs.

Shelter Tasmania will be launching the calendar of events in July and we will send you out the link when it is available.
