Let's End Homelessness in WA
Everyone has a right to a home Together we can end homelessness in WA This is just the beginning (Please note that if you donate through this platform it goes to change.org if you are looking to donate to #End HomelessnessWA please go to www.EndHomelessnessWA.com) Did you know that over 600 people sleep rough in the Perth Metro every night? We know that with coordinated action this is possible. The current approach is failing to address the growing number of people experiencing homelessness. We believe that together we can create a robust 10 Year Action Plan that will lead us to our goal of Ending Homelessness in WA by 2028. Sign this petition you to register your support.

Homelessness is often hidden, only 6% are rough sleepers. There are close to 10,000 people experiencing homelessness in Western Australia. Ending homelessness makes economic sense - it's more cost-effective to house someone and support them than it is to manage homelessness. Other cities throughout Canada and the U.S. have been successfully working towards reducing homelessness through 10 year plans - we can do the same.
