Homelessness Week Series

3 - 7 August 2020

With housing issues at the forefront of people’s minds and unemployment levels rising, this year may be the most important Homelessness Week yet. In the midst of this global pandemic, we are facilitating a series of dynamic online articles, events and videos to ensure this important week continues to be highlighted. There will be a special global focus with homelessness expert, Dr Nonie Brennan, joining us live from Canada. A progress update will also be given on The Adelaide Zero Project and its goal of reaching functional zero street homelessness in the inner city by the end of 2020.

Follow our social media accounts to keep up to date on the week’s activities.

Sociologist, poet and social justice advocate Dr John Falzon, joins the Don Dunstan Foundation in welcoming Homelessness Week with a commentary on the current state of homelessness.

This will be released on Monday 3 August.
