Perth City Homelessness

In partnership with the WA Alliance to End Homelessness, we were pleased to meet with Cr Di Bain from the City of Perth to discuss solutions to end homelessness in the City.

Cr Bain’s pledge to work with the sector, signed before the Council elections, was presented to her. Local government has a key role to play and we look forward to working with the City on evidence based solutions. At the first City of Perth Ordinary Council Meeting, Council approved an investment of $575,000 to refit 160 Hay Street, East Perth as a Safe Night Space for women.

Interim Homelessness Plan

On 30 July 2019, City of Perth Commissioners endorsed an Interim Homelessness Plan. This action plan includes a 12-month trial to assist in the coordination of homelessness support services and goodwill groups providing service delivery in the inner city. Read it here.
