Regional Homelessness Plan
The City of Wanneroo adopted its second Regional Homelessness Plan in June 2022. The Plan has been developed in partnership with the City of Joondalup and guides how the cities respond to homelessness in the region.
Collaboration with external agencies, community groups and organisations is a key element of the Plan.
Achievements since the adoption of the inaugural Plan in 2018 include:
• Engaging agencies to provide emergency services and referral pathways to support people experiencing homelessness.
• Establishing a Food Relief Collaboration Group to maximise food relief services for the community.
• Working with Community Field Officers from the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2021 to aid accurate data collection for the Census.
• Researching and engaging with local businesses in areas where people are sleeping rough to encourage an individualised and supportive response.
