Response to Homelessness

Hardship and Homelessness Services

The City of Joondalup has produced the Hardship and Homelessness Services booklet which also covers the City of Wanneroo and has been invaluable in linking people into vital support services.

Regional Homelessness Plan 2018/19 – 2021/22

Homelessness is a complex issue that has far-reaching impacts in the community.

The Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo are committed to working with key stakeholders to ensure that people at-risk of, or experiencing homelessness have the opportunity to improve their circumstances. The Regional Homelessness Plan 2018/19 – 2021/22 demonstrates that commitment. Outcomes in the plan will be achieved through agreed actions by both Cities which are underpinned by three key pillars:

  • Building community capacity, understanding and engagement.
  • Prevention and early intervention, and
  • Responding to homelessness.

This video shows the stakeholders working together to develop the plan.

Joondalup Wanneroo Ending Homelessness Group

The Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo were founding members of the Joondalup Wanneroo Ending Homelessness Group or JWEHG (pronounced jay-weg). Red Cross is currently the lead organisation of the group. The group meets every six weeks and is open to members from all sectors who are seeking to share information, collaborate and serve the community to end homelessness in the northern corridor. Its vision is to end homelessness in the region.  The JWEHG is integral to the delivery of the Regional Homelessness Plan.
