Directions Paper

The Supporting Communities Forum Homelessness Working Group has developed the Directions Paper for the 10-Year Strategy on Homelessness Western Australia 2019–2029.

The purpose of the paper is to share the work that has been done so far and to seek feedback on how to better support those who are at risk of, or experiencing homelessness.

Community organisations, government agencies, local government and members of the community are invited to provide feedback on the Directions Paper. Feedback will be used to inform the Strategy, which will be finalised in mid-2019.

Please email submissions by 4pm on 17 May 2019 to or mail to

Attn: Homelessness Strategy Team
