517. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Community Services:
(1) Has any additional funding been allocated in the 2019–20 budget to expand the Household Network service run by the Perth Inner City Youth Service for trans and gender diverse young people?
(2) If yes to (1), how much funding has been allocated?
(3) If no to (1), why not?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(2) Not applicable.
(3) The Department of Communities is currently consulting and developing a whole-of-government 10-year strategy on homelessness, which is due to be launched in the second half of 2019. The strategy is currently being developed in partnership between government and the community sector through the Supporting Communities Forum’s homelessness strategy working group. Future homelessness funding will be informed by the strategy.
