Together, we are stronger.

Every story matters

Accordwest has a long history in the Southwest of setting up our communities’ most vulnerable and at risk for success. Our belief that every story matters inspires us to launch life-changing projects that bring to life our unwavering commitment to support more people. Now, thanks to a series of new and ground-breaking projects spanning Bunbury, Collie, and right across the regions, our plan to end homelessness in the Southwest is all coming together. Click on the projects below to discover more about the stories behind them, who they will benefit, the kinds of services on offer, and how, together, we’re bringing our vision to life.

Held in May 2024, our Symposium100 is a ground-breaking event that marks the start of a bold target to design, fund and build at least 100 brand new social houses through local community partnerships across the South West.

Bunyap 2.0 will provide young people aged 18-25 who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness a safe space to regain control as they transition to a life they choose to live.

These three new transitional homes will give more vulnerable women and their families the time, care and support they need to take back control over their lives.

We’re renovating 14 of our 31 community houses by updating everything from the kitchens to the bathrooms, laundry, painting, flooring, roofing repairs and solar.

Tiny Houses is a community-led initiative designed to help people experiencing homelessness stabilise before they transition into more permanent accommodation.

In October 2023, Accordwest launched our first ever Hello Roadshow gathering real stories about first-hand consequences of homelessness from towns across the South West.

It's all coming together

Accordwest’s plan to end homelessness in the South West is all coming together. The Community Housing Grants projects add to our long and storied history of setting up people for success tracing back to 1983, ensuring we continue to ‘support more people’ by delivering accessible, evidence-based services that leave an enduring social impact. And we couldn’t do it without the support and generosity of our friends and neighbours, likeminded community organisations, supportive local members of parliament and state level ministers. After all, that’s what a strong, successful community does – support each other, lift those who a struggling, and rally behind our most vulnerable so that we’re all afforded the opportunity to live the life we want. If you or anyone you know is interested to know more, or are able to contribute in anyway, we’d love you to reach out or please use the DONATE button via our homepage.
