C-19 Response Team on Homelessness

A COVID-19 lead group has been established by the homelessness services sector


Earlier this week Shelter WA and Homelessness services providers from across Western Australia met to discuss the current and future impact of COVID-19 on their services and their clients. Services, already at full capacity are stretched and face a tsunami of additional pressures as the pandemic’s impact unfolds.

A COVID-19 lead group has been established by the homelessness services sector in partnership with Shelter WA to co-ordinate a sector response and to work with government on specific initiatives. Key issues to date that are facing the sector can be found here

More communications for this group will follow in the coming days.
