August 2 - 8, 2010

On any given night, over 13,300 West Australians and 105,000 Australians are homeless.
This includes people experiencing primary homelessness, referring to those who must sleep outdoors, in parks or in make-shift structures – rough sleepers. Secondary homelessness includes people who move between temporary places, staying with friends, relatives or in crisis accommodation. Tertiary homelessness refers to people living in rooming or boarding houses or any other accommodation that is considered below basic community standards.

This week there will be events held all around Perth to help support people who are homeless:
