What is homelessness day/week?

The World Homeless Day / Homelessness Awareness Week, or sometimes called homeless day, hunger & homelessness week, is a national and worldwide day on October 10th, each year. 

This year, homeless awareness day falls on a Thursday and charities and organisations all across the world will be raising awareness for local homeless issues and to also campaign to scrap the Vagrancy Act.

The main aims for homeless week are to raise awareness, change stereotypes, highlight the great work of the sector and build links between users, services and the public.

This October, Pledge will be raising awareness of the great work being done across Manchester and Edinburgh, and we’re asking members of the public to sign our petition to ‘Stamp Out Homelessness’ and to also scrap the Vagrancy Act.
