We’re celebrating World Homeless Day today

The concept of ‘World Homeless Day’ emerged from online discussions between people working to respond to homelessness from various parts of the world.

The Inaugural World Homeless Day was marked on the 10th of October 2010.

Since its founding, World Homeless Day has been observed on every continent except Antarctica, in several dozen countries.

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.

This World Homeless Day we’re focusing on the issue of rough sleeping.  We’ll be using Twitter and the hashtag #WHD15 to highlight the harsh realities of rough sleeping in Wales, provide facts and figures about people sleeping rough, and highlighting the solutions we provide to combat this issue.
