That was the theme this year as Mandurah organisations came together for Homelessness Week. Nidjalla Wangaan Mia and the Assertive Outreach Team participated in two events to help bring services, clothes and information to people who are living rough.
The first event was hosted by West Aus Crisis Care on the Mandurah foreshore with free activities, food, drinks and give away's from local community services organisations supporting those experiencing homelessness in our community.
The Mobile Health Bus was there and the teams spoke to many people who are in need of services and a hand to guide them in the right direction.
The second event was held on Friday at the Baptist Church in Mandurah organised by Anglicare and St Vincent de Paul. A range of local community services including housing, financial, alcohol & other drug, employment & training, family & domestic violence.
Visitors were able to access hot food, tea & coffee, hampers, haircuts, clothes, sleeping bags and much more. Services to the homeless are much needed in the community and we are pleased that we could offer some support and jackets to those in need.
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
