The Department of Communities (Communities) is undertaking an Expression of Interest (EOI) process to shortlist suitable organisations to assist with developing key elements of its homelessness and housing project; Common Ground.
The EOI process will shortlist Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations; Community Service Organisations, and Community Housing Organisations to participate in the process of adapting the known Common Ground model to meet the needs of the Western Australian cohort.

Common Ground is a model of permanent, supportive housing in a purpose-built complex, for adults who have experienced chronic homelessness or are low income earners. The model is based on a ‘Housing First’ approach, where people experiencing homelessness and rough sleeping are placed in housing as a first priority and provided with wrap around supports.
