    World Homeless Day is an annual event on the 10th of October.

    The purpose of World Homeless Day is to draw attention to homeless people’s needs locally and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in responding to homelessness, while taking advantage of the stage an ‘international day’ provides.

  • Tue 11-Oct-22 4:30pm-7:00pm (2:30 Hrs)

    The event provides time for reflection and thought for those affected by homelessness, and offers an opportunity for people to tell their story and pass on memories of others who have lost their lives during circumstances of homeless.
