BHP forum

St Barts Lunch and Learn 960L

Over 30 BHP staff attended a recent Lunch and Learn forum with St Bart’s to hear more about the issue of homelessness in WA, as well as personal stories from our clients. Feedback following the session was extremely positive, with people expressing their shock at how easily individuals can become homeless. And they were also keen to hear more about our Helping Homelessness partnership that is supporting our services in crisis and transitional accommodation, mental health, aged care and community housing. St Bart’s applauds BHP, which stands out amongst West Australian corporations for supporting the homelessness sector. Thank you BHP! And we think the below quote from one of today’s participants really sums things up:

“My opinion about homelessness has definitely changed following the talk, it has really surprised me to hear how quickly life can spiral out of control, and very capable people can find themselves in difficulty and ultimately homeless in a very short space of time.”
