Tenancy WA and Street Law recognised

Shelter WA congratulates our organisation's members - Tenancy WA  and Street Law for being recognised for the valued and much needed Safe as Houses Program.

Tenancy WA  won this year's Attorney General's Community Service Law Awards for the Safe as Houses program, which Street Law Centre WA and the Women's Law Centre of WA deliver in partnership with Tenancy WA.

Attorney General John Quigley made the announcement at the the annual Attorney General's Community Service Law Awards at a Law Week breakfast function on Monday, May 14. 

Tenancy WA was honoured for its Safe as Houses program which through the case-cordinated method is helping women, children and young people in precarious living arrangements, often as a result of family violence.

Tenancy WA, the Street Law Centre and Women's Law Centre give specialist legal advice and representation to this group to stop them falling into homelessness.

Shelter WA CEO Michelle Mackenzie said ensuring women and children do not fall into homelessness is such important work.  

“Shelter WA applauds the work of all Tenancy WA, Street Law and Women's Law Centre staff members.”

The award program is in its 12th year and recognises the individual lawyer and legal practice that have done the most outstanding pro bono legal work, donating their time and legal expertise.
