Remote Maintenance Forum

In partnership with the Department of Communities, Shelter WA facilitated a forum to discuss maintenance issues on remote communities.

Attendees who came from the Kimberley, Pilbara, Midwest and Goldfields regions included regional service providers, agencies that provide tenancy support and tenant advocates.

The safety, quality and security of housing is fundamental to people’s health, well-being and quality of life. The forum discussed current issues around the management of maintenance and its impact on people, communities, and service providers. The opportunities to utilise maintenance to provide employment pathways, develop business opportunities and deliver better health outcomes for people were discussed.

A planned and preventive maintenance approach will create new jobs, deliver regional prosperity, improve health, well-being and education. It supports the government’s Aboriginal employment and procurement strategies and the Department of Communities focus on people, place and home. Shelter WA looks forward to working with the Department, services and communities to progress the outcomes discussed at the forum.
