Shelter's Intersector breakfast a success
Politicians, Western Australia’s Chief Justice, the Lord Mayor of Perth and mayors from other local governments, along with housing industry leaders from the private, government and non-government sectors were today among the 130 people who gathered in Perth to explore innovative solutions to increase the amount and diversity of affordable housing in Western Australia.
Shelter WA hosted the function, which was held at the Hyatt Regency in Perth, on December 1.
The financing, delivery and effectiveness of programs to reduce homelessness
This research examined the funding sources of homeless services through administering a survey to Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) and other (non-specialist) services which deliver homelessness services (non-SHS). While the survey highlighted that funding is predominantly from government sources, there is growing interest in the diversification of funding sources to meet service demand, enable service innovation and attain agency sustainability. Flexibility and discretion of funding utilisation is favoured by agencies to meet service objectives.
