Championing the development of an affordable housing system and ending homelessness in WA

Shelter WA is an independent peak body, based in Perth Western Australia, that advocates for social and affordable housing and ending homelessness. We are committed to facilitating greater choice and housing stability for all, with a particular focus for people on low to moderate incomes and vulnerable housing consumers.

We do this by collaborating with the not-for-profit housing and community services sector, all spheres of government, businesses, industry bodies, housing consumers and research institutions.

Shelter WA undertakes research, engagement, policy development and strong advocacy to drive solutions to alleviate housing-related poverty. 

We believe housing is a basic human right. Housing unlocks opportunity, enhances health and well being, access to educational and employment options and enables people to fully participate in community life.

Shelter WA is part of a national network of housing organisations.

Our Vision:     All people living in Western Australia have housing that enables them to thrive.

Our Purpose:  We work with our members, and others where appropriate, to provide a strong voice and lead the development of an effective housing system.

Our Values:    Courage, Innovation, Collaboration and Leadership.
