The City of Subiaco is taking action to assist people at risk of, or those currently experiencing homelessness by engaging the Salvation Army’s Homelessness Services Team to deliver a weekly walk-in centre.

Operated by two trained Salvation Army Outreach Officers, the service commenced this Wednesday 6 September and will run every Wednesday from 10am to 2pm at The Third Place, Barker Road in Subiaco.

The walk-in centre will assess the individual needs of clients, providing information, food, water, clothing, and sleeping bags as well as referrals to appropriate services including exploring accommodation options and transportation to referrals for further services.

City of Subiaco Mayor David McMullen said, “The centre will provide a coordinated response to homelessness and help some of the most vulnerable members of our community. It offers the complex care required to make a meaningful difference to the lives of people who are at risk of, or who are experiencing homelessness in the community.”

Earlier in the year the City of Subiaco and The Salvation Army worked in partnership to trial a Subiaco Engagement and Assessment Team, providing an outreach program for people experiencing homelessness, along with a weekly walk-in centre.

The Salvation Army State Manager of Homelessness Services Major Ken Smith said, “The data and the case studies highlight the need for a specialised homelessness response within the City of Subiaco. The trial had a significant impact on supporting vulnerable community members, living in Subiaco, even within a short trial period.”

The Salvation Army have a referral number for anyone in the City of Subiaco who wants to help someone experiencing homelessness. In addition to this, they operate an evening outreach service that supports several local government areas including the City.
