Homelessness

West Australians who are at risk of, or experiencing homelessness, are some of the most vulnerable in the community and require support to end homelessness. Tackling homelessness requires a strong focus on intervening early to prevent homelessness, and ensuring a range of flexible and responsive services are available to break the homelessness cycle. It is recognised that the response to homelessness also requires an integrated service system from all sectors of the community.

  • Homeless Advisory Service: 1800 065 892
