Minister meets new Shelter WA CEO

Shelter WA representatives met with John Carey MLA in their regular quarterly meeting with the Minister for Housing; Lands; Homelessness; Local Government.

It’s the first time Kath Snell has met the Minister in her capacity as Chief Executive Officer of Shelter WA. The regular meetings are an opportunity to provide feedback from the sector on government policy and regulations and how our members can work in partnership with government to drive social and affordable housing supply.

“I look forward to continuing the close relationship Shelter WA has with the Minister,” Ms Snell said.

“Minister Carey is a strong supporter of social housing, and we continue to look at delivering great housing outcomes despite the challenges of the overheated construction market.”

Chair of Shelter WA Kieran Wong; Secretary Justine Colyer and Chair Governance, Audit and Risk Committee Natalie Sangalli also met with the Minister.
