Ending Homelessness – a simple yet complex challenge

Homelessness continues to be a hot issue in WA and in the City of Perth in particular with Mayoral Elections coming up. Research and world best practice to end rough sleeping is a concept named Housing First – it’s simple really - provide someone a safe secure place to live and they are more likely to seek and accept help for other challenges in their life that contributed to their homelessness. Sandy will share the Vinnies approach to supporting people whom are homeless and the very big difference between managing homelessness and ending it.

Walking in Two Worlds

As a first nations woman, working in a corporate environment, I am constantly faced with challenging situations of conflicting priorities and expectations between Western and First Nations protocols and responsibilities.

It is this predicament that has sparked an interest in the co-design space of project work. We are an organic society not bound by hierarchy. The code designed method of engagement and project scope enables a safe and culturally secure space, relevant to our values frameworks that will see meaningful change transcend boundaries. Building effective Indigenous engagement involves securing greater two-way accountability and legitimacy, whilst respecting and acknowledging the difference of opinion and diversity.

Come along and hear my story of how I have aligned cultural and business responsibilities, whilst staying true to myself. I will share how IPS can assist your journey towards reconciliation and acknowledgement of our first nations people.
