Home­less so­lu­tions

Weekend Courier - - Opinion -

AN EX­TEN­SIVE new re­port on home­less­ness in Aus­tralian cap­i­tal cities will be re­leased in Perth this week.

The State of Home­less­ness in Aus­tralia’s Cities: A Health and So­cial Cost Too High draws on more than 8600 in­ter­views with home­less peo­ple and pro­vides in­sight into their health and so­cial needs and as­pi­ra­tions.

The re­port brings to­gether ev­i­dence from seven years of Reg­istry Week data col­lec­tions by home­less­ness ser­vices and vol­un­teers in cities in­clud­ing Perth and Fre­man­tle.

Cen­tre for So­cial Im­pact UWA di­rec­tor and lead au­thor Pro­fes­sor Paul Flatau will de­liver an over­view of the re­port on April 12 at The Plat­form, which fo­cuses on how to end WA home­less­ness us­ing lo­cal data.
