Crisis support volunteers at Tranby Engagement Hub East Perth

Homeless Regular - more than 6 months Perth WA

About this opportunity

Our Tranby Engagement Hub is an engagement and referral service for people who are in crisis and sleeping rough in and around the City of Perth.

We assist adults in crisis who have been referred from outreach or other support services. Our team provide essential services such as showers and food, and we also work 1:1 with people to understand their individual needs and support them to access the services that are right for them.

Tranby is a safe, supportive environment where people are welcomed exactly as they are. We support people to develop the capacity and skills they need to move from crisis towards secure, long-term accommodation. We also partner with visiting agencies to provide medical, legal, counselling and advocacy services.
