Online Homelessness Services Portal Project: Lived Experience Participation
What’s it all about?
The Department of Communities is funding a new online homelessness services platform which provides people experiencing homelessness a better way to view and enquire about accommodation vacancies across WA.
In order to develop something that works they need people with experience of seeking accommodation to work with the project team to design it.
There are different opportunities to contribute to the development of the platform over the course of the year 2022. Due to Covid restrictions and in order to keep everyone safe these will be held online or in small groups or one to one.
The expression of interest form is to be completed by anyone interested in supporting the project team to help them understand the needs of people experiencing homelessness.
The project is seeking participants with lived experience of homelessness to be part of an ongoing Lived Experience Advisory Group as well as people to participate in one to one interviews to inform the development of the homelessness portal.
The project organisers are also seeking up to three people to represent the Lived Experience Advisory Group on the Design Team.
All participants will be paid for their time and any travel undertaken in their duties.
Please submit your interest by completing the form by Friday 8th April 2022.
If you want to find out more about the project before filling in the form or would like support in doing so then please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 0410034814 for assistance to fill in the form.
