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.
As the mayoral candidates gathered amid a row of tents, they listened intently over the noise of peak-hour trains to the shared experiences of several residents.
Facilitated by journalist Tim Gossage, the Ending Homelessness Forum successfully kept the issue of homelessness, one of the city’s biggest issues firmly on the election agenda.
We urge all candidates to take time to look at the evidence of what works, and the positive initiatives in Perth that are providing permanent homes and support for people who have experienced homelessness.
Shelter WA & the WA Alliance to End Homelessness will host a forum between the six candidates who hope to be the next City of Perth Mayor.
