What's On

Shelter WA promotes and coordinates events that bring people together across the housing continuum. From events such as Homelessness Week and policy consultations to affordable housing sector networking events. We’re always looking for ways to bring people together in our mission to ensure access to safe and affordable housing and ending homelessness.

Shelter WA members receive special prices for most Shelter WA ticketed events.

    Community Housing Study Forum

    Community Housing Providers are invited to participate in a forum to consider themes emerging from Stage One of the Department of Communities’ Community Housing Study.

    Stage One involved discussions with a sample of key stakeholders in the community housing sector. Through the forum, CHPs will be briefed on themes and issues raised in Stage One, and invited to provide feedback. Given the diversity of the CHP sector, this is an important opportunity for CHPs to ensure that the material being developed by the Department is tested from a variety of perspectives.

    The Department will be running separate feedback processes for organisations and individuals who are not Community Housing Providers. Shelter WA will provide information about those processes as it becomes available.

    Time:    9am-12pm
    Date:    Wednesday, 11 July 2018
    Place:   The Rise, 28 Eighth Avenue, Maylands
