There’s a call for the state’s political parties to make housing affordability an election issue.
Shelter WA is seeking a commitment from an incoming Government to tackle the rising issues of living expenses and homelessness, hoping it will “commit to a sustained boost,” in the public, private and community housing sector.
Over the past two years, public dwelling stock has dropped by 241 homes.
Research suggests that providing stable public housings to those experiencing homelessness could save the Western Australian health system “more than 16 million a year.”
