Perth Homelessness Strategy Working Group

Perth Homeless Support Group have been consulting with the State Government in a leadership capacity as they develop the State Homelessness Strategy and subsequent legislation.

As part of this process we have been able to have input in the Perth Homelessness Services Accreditation Process that is intended to better coordinate services between agencies, set standard of care and conduct, and improve communication with government at various levels.

We are humbled at this opportunity and will share the outcome, what it all means and how it will impact the delivery of our services to those experiencing homelessness when the information is available.

The Great Clothes Swap - Sat 24 Aug 10am to 2pm

Perth Homeless Support Group Inc. is having a Clothing Swap Day! We'll also be running a sausage sizzle to help raise money too! Make sure you come along on saturday 24th August, 10am to 2pm at our HQ, U2, 28 Munt St Bayswater.

How does it work?

Well we have 2 large pallets of brand new clothes in sizes from 000 baby clothes to 26 woman's, so we thought that we would ask you, our amazing community members, to bring a donation from our donation list and you will receive a shopping bag which you are then free to go through and fill up with clothing!

Clothing will be sorted into sizes on the day and if you bring 2 donations off the list you get 2 bags, 3 donations 3 bags and so on.

We're making progress, but still need your help

Perth Homeless Support Group feed, clothe and support over 200 people who are experiencing homelessness each week. This is a massive effort and we thank everyone who volunteers their time and services or contributes funding and supplies to make this possible.

With numbers growing every week, the volume of equipment and supplies needing to be transported means that we need two larger vans and ask that you help us to making this happen.

Donations are accepted by direct deposit to Perth Homeless Support Group, BSB: 805-015 Account: 01904280 using Van as your description or via Paypal where you will be issued with a tax receipt.
