Housing, Health and Homelessness
"The purpose of this communique is to provide an overview, outcomes and key recommendations from Homelessness Week 2022. Homelessness Week is an important annual event to shine a light on homelessness, to learn from the voices of people with lived experience of homelessness and collectively reflect on what we need to do to end homelessness.
In Western Australia, this year’s theme was ‘Homelessness, Housing and Health’. This chosen theme aims to discuss the opportunities for greater collaboration between health, housing and homeless services to reduce barriers and be more responsive to people experiencing homelessness, reducing the cycle of people in and out of the health system.
Homelessness Week 2022 was supported by the Department of Communities, Lotterywest, Uniting Church in the City and Beyond Bank."
