The front line of an ongoing public health emergency – Investigating Aboriginal homelessness in WA for Homelessness Week

Tuesday 4th August / posted by Danae Gibson

While the rest of us retreated indoors during lock down, hundreds of rough sleepers were left to fend for themselves on our empty streets. As we emerge from the pandemic and into an election campaign, we ask why WA didn’t do more for its most vulnerable.

Aboriginal people are more than ten times as likely to be homeless in WA, and the consequences are far-reaching - in our schools, our hospitals, and our jails.

In this two-part deep-dive investigation, Jesse Noakes hits the streets to talk to politicians, experts and advocates working on the frontlines - and to the people living, breathing and sleeping out there.
