World Homeless Week is organised by Church Homeless Trust as part of our mission to challenge, encourage, and support churches to help homeless people. It embraces World Homeless Day on 10 October in solidarity with homeless people, and those who help them, worldwide.
Church Homeless Trust produces a free guide called ‘How to Help Homeless People’, and other educational and fundraising materials for you to use at your church, school, or community group. We can also put you in contact with local organisations to help you to set up your own initiative.
