Winter Appeal Launch CANCELLED
Unfortunately, the four-day lockdown for Perth and Peel as a result of the latest COVID-19 outbreak has forced us to make the difficult decision to cancel our June 30 Winter Appeal Launch event.
This was not a decision taken lightly as the need for public support is still very real and profound. We have already seen a huge increase in need this winter, coupled with the uncertainty around COVID-19 and the difficulties encountered during the previous 18 months.
We currently have an estimated 540 rough sleepers in Perth and Fremantle and much work needs to occur quickly to get people off the streets, and into stable accommodation with the appropriate supports.
The recent exposure of the Delta variant of the virus highlights the risk and the urgency of this work.
We apologise for any inconvenience that has occurred and we thank you for your understanding.
Despite the event not going ahead the appeal is very much ongoing and I encourage you to share the following link with your friends and contacts so that we can continue to provide support to people experiencing homelessness and hardship. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
