Aboriginal Housing and Health Report

Shelter WA received a grant from the Australian Government Department of Health to undertake a review of Indigenous housing policy and programs, reviewing the intersection of housing and health policy, and to provide information on the policy changes required to deliver better housing and health outcomes. Shelter WA and National Shelter appointed PwC’s Indigenous Consulting Pty Limited.

A governance group was created in partnership with National Shelter and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Housing Association to oversee this project.

Pre-Budget Submission 2021-22

Social Housing Acceleration and Renovation Program (SHARP)

At this difficult time the Government’s emergency measures to support businesses and workers will bring much-needed relief to many Australians. Equally, it’s imperative that we plan now for a government-driven stimulus program to kickstart our country’s post-crisis recovery. This will be vital in getting people back into jobs fast, and also in enhancing building company confidence to retain workers.
