Homeless Connect cancelled

HOMELESS Connect Perth will not run in 2020. 

The big one-day annual event usually runs in November at Russell Square, connecting homeless people with a variety of support organisations and offering services like dental work and haircuts. 

Volunteering WA organises the event but says along with major partner, Perth city council, it had decided not to go ahead this year due to concerns about large gatherings during the Covid era.

“This year’s event would not be safe for our guests, service providers and the volunteers, Volunteering WA said in a statement.
