The Funding of Western Australian Homelessness Services 2022 report provides comprehensive evidence of the funding of specialist homelessness services, mainstream services and Aboriginal services which assist those experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness in Western Australia. This report presents: (1) an overview of the state of homelessness and the policy environment that Western Australian homelessness services operate within; and, (2) a comprehensive overview of the funding of homelessness services in Western Australia based on the extant literature, findings from a survey of 73 representative homelessness services operating across Western Australia and outcomes from focus groups comprising service managers. Western Australian homelessness services have provided much-needed evidence of the type, mix, and level of funding for services that support those experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness, as well as the barriers in attracting funding, the extent to which services are able tomeet needs, and commissioning/contractual issues.
