Advisory Committee on Homelessness

The Shelter WA Advisory Committee on Homelessness (SWACH) was established to work towards recommendations initially identified during  the Shelter WA Future of Homelessness Forum, which took place on 20 May 2014.  The recommendations identified at the forum were:

  1. Provide integrated services to address homelessness in Western Australia
  2. Better use of existing resources for social and affordable housing
  3. Secure future funding commitments from Government and identify alternative funding opportunities
  4. Requirement for expanded and improved data collection
  5. Coordinated sector advocacy
  6. Provision of responsive and diverse services
  7. Provision of early intervention and prevention strategies
  8. Develop more ‘exit points’ for crisis accommodation
