Reviewing and strengthening the Western Australian response to homelessness: the way forward

The Department for Child Protection and Family Support is organising homelessness forums on Reviewing and strengthening the Western Australian response to homelessness: the way forward. These forums are being held in country regions and across the Perth metropolitan area between early July and September 2016.

These forums will provide an opportunity for service providers and key stakeholders to be part of planning the future of homelessness service provision. The information collated from the forums will lay the foundation for the preparation of future workshops for developing service models for the homelessness sector. Forums are open to government agencies, non-government organisations, private sector and any other organisation that works within the homelessness sector.

To register your interest to attend this forum, please email Suma Govindan at Suma.Govindan@cpfs.wa.gov.au stating your name, organisation, contact details and region you are interested in as soon as possible.
