Homeless at the Census

Next Tuesday night (9 August 2011) is Census night. The Census is important for all sorts of reasons: one of the most important – and challenging – is getting a count of the number of people who are homeless.

Our colleagues from the homelessness sector have created this poster to let homeless persons know how to get counted as such.

As the posters says, write 'NONE' in the 'suburb/locality' box at question 10 ('Where does this person usually live').

This goes whether you are spending Census night in a refuge or crisis accommodation, or a boarding house, or if you're staying with family or friends and you've no home of your own.

Spread the word.
