World Homelessness Day

This year 10 October is World Homeless Day.

It is an opportunity here in Scotland to reflect on the activity that has taken place over the past six months, and the 12 months since last year’s event including many of the issues that we will be discussing at Safe As Houses, Scotland’s Homelessness Conference 20-22 October.

People can get involved in World Homelessness Day through schools, with work colleagues, places of worship or family groups, either raising money for local and national charities or helping to raise awareness of the issue through social media.

On 10 October tweet @homelessday or #WorldHomelessDay to raise the issues that matter to you and your organisation. For more information on work taking place across the world to address homelessness visit The Institute of Global Homelessness.
