On any given night in Western Australia, around 9,000 people can be considered to be homeless.
Across the world many communities, cities, and states have committed to ending homelessness and they are winning.
We can do the same here in Western Australia.
The Western Australian Alliance to End Homelessness is an independent body of individuals and organisational partners working to end homelessness in communities across WA.
Open to anyone who believes homelessness is solvable, the Alliance works by taking a deep dive into understanding the problem and ending it together. We do this by empowering communities through research, sharing and learning, innovative collaboration and measurable outcomes for people experiencing homelessness.
The Alliance works to end chronic homelessness by delivering on the five strategic challenges of housing, prevention, a strong coordinated approach, data and research and community capacity building.
With a new dynamic team established in late 2022, the Alliance is calling on communities, individuals, organisations, business and all levels of government to partner with us to continue the work of ending homelessness in Western Australia.”
The Alliance encourages other communities and stakeholders to use the Strategy, to align and create a combined effort across Western Australia to reach the goal of ending homelessness by 2028.
Our plan includes 5 key focus areas:
Housing - ensure adequate and affordable housing
Prevention - focus on prevention and early intervention
Strong and Coordinated Approach - no 'wrong-door system'
Data, Research and Targets - improve data and research, and set clear targets
Build Community Capacity - never about us, without us
