No one plans to be homeless, nor do they plan on the complex range of issues that lead them to that point.
Each year, Brisbane City Council and Volunteering Queensland join forces with over 300 volunteers to run Homeless Connect. This important one-day event proudly hosts vulnerable members of the Brisbane community as guests, providing connection with vital services and supplies.
In a one-stop-shop environment, guests have access to medical, employment, housing and legal services, as well as clothing and footwear, food, bedding, toiletries and more. Guests at the event are also invited to enjoy professional personal care services such as haircuts and grooming.
With an offering of vital services and a day of fun activities and entertainment, Homeless Connect treats guests with dignity and grace while providing a boost to their self-esteem. This is an important and unique event driving human connection and reducing barriers between community and guests.
General event registrations for Homeless Connect November are now closed.
We are still currently seeking specialised volunteers for medical care & allied health (audiologists & dentists), hairdressers & barbers, musicians, performers, and photographers. We encourage volunteers to express their interest and select their specialisation on the form below.
We are sorry if you missed out on general event registrations this time around. If you would like to hear about the next event, please express your interest below and we will send details as the event approaches.
Once you complete the expression of interest form, you will be added to the Homeless Connect volunteer database. If you are a specialised volunteer, we will contact you for the November event shortly.
Homeless Connect would not happen without the generous support provided by volunteers. Thank you!
