Event description

The Australian Alliance to End Homelessness (AAEH) invites you to join us for an online forum focusing on Rough Sleeping Responses due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

This is your opportunity to stay connected, and hear about responses that have been implemented in other communities across Australia to support people sleeping rough during this pandemic.

Key leaders from each State and Territory taking part in the forum will have the opportunity to ask questions and identify what actions need to be taken to better respond to this emerging crisis.
