Ministerial Meeting

Housing meeting with the Minister for Indigenous Australians.

Shelter WA was pleased to meet with Minister Ken Wyatt, Minister for Indigenous Australians, with the Telethon Kids Institute Ngulluk Koolunga Ngulluk Koort Project team and Elders, and representatives from Noongar Mia Mia, the Goldfields Indigenous Housing Organisation and the Murchison Regional Aboriginal Corporation to discuss a range of housing issues.

A core focus of the meeting was on the important role that Aboriginal Community Housing Organisations play in providing homes for families and children, providing the foundation for good health, education and employment opportunities. Western Australia’s Aboriginal Community Housing organisations provide homes for thousands of Aboriginal people across metropolitan and regional Western Australia, based in a respect and understanding of cultural obligations and ensuring that families are supported to sustain their homes and have housing that meets their needs as their circumstances change.

Community Housing is a critical part of the housing system. Shelter WA looks forward to working with the Aboriginal Community Housing sector to advocate for more safe, secure and culturally appropriate housing supply and to capitalise on new opportunities.
