Fremantle Registry Week Community Briefing

The Fremantle Community Briefing outlines the preliminary findings from the Fremantle Registry Week which took place in June.

Perth Registry Week was extended in June to include the Fremantle area, which was a fantastic development and once again teams of volunteers were out on the streets, interviewing rough sleepers to prioritise them for assistance.

Ruah proudly supported St Patrick’s Community Support Centre as the lead agency in the Fremantle Registry Week.


Ruah Community Services coordinated Perth’s third Registry Week, between the 8th and the 19th of February 2016, with teams of trained volunteers surveying rough-sleeping homeless people in the Inner City Perth, Joondalup/Wanneroo and Rockingham/Kwinana areas as part of an initiative designed to assist the city’s most vulnerable.

In collaboration with the Department for Child Protection and Family Support, WA Police, City councils and various other community services organisations, Ruah hosted the initiative; which seeks to develop a registry of the needs of people sleeping rough in these areas.

Having already run successfully in 2012 and 2014, Perth Registry Week 2016 seeks to identify the most vulnerable homeless people in order to prioritise them for housing and support as part of the 50 Lives 50 Homes Project.
