WEEK 3

All in it Together

Make ending homelessness a shared priority

Evidence suggests that progress towards ending homelessness will be slow until it’s seen as a shared goal for the whole of society. In the third week of the festival, we will be exploring what it means for us to be all in it together towards ending homelessness.

The issue of homelessness cannot be tackled by one organisation, sector or government alone – every part of society has a role to play. Over the course of the festival’s third week, we will hear from those working in homelessness and beyond about the importance of community in supporting ‘top down’ policy, and the need to shift the public perception away from harmful stigma, towards a more accurate and supportive understanding of homelessness.

We will also hear from philanthropists and social entrepreneurs about how innovation and investment from beyond the sector can bring a fresh perspective to the fight against homelessness.
