The WA Housing Hub is designed to be an interactive online platform to foster the sharing of information, generate discussion and promote collaboration across the housing community.

The Shelter WA affordable housing 'clearinghouse' is where you will find the latest research and key affordable housing data for the social and affordable housing, and homelessness sectors.

This page also includes social and affordable housing case studies, which demonstrate how successful developments within Australia and across the globe were able to be delivered. It is envisaged that these examples can be drawn upon to encourage the continual development of social and affordable housing within Western Australia.

We are always adding new material, so if you do not see the topic you are interested in below; send us an email to info@wahousinghub.org.au. You can also view our sources of Research Data here.
