Wayne Martin, AC QC

"I am delighted to serve as Patron of "My Home" – an innovative programme that facilitates the private sector using public land, which would not otherwise be used, to provide low cost housing to homeless people, in accordance with Housing First principles.

I believe that the public-private partnership model has much to offer in bridging the gap between housing need and housing supply for the many who find a home beyond their reach."

Success for "My Home"

The aims of the "My Home" project are to:

  • bring Government, Church, Corporate Sector and Community together to provide an efficient, low-cost housing option for homeless people or those at risk of homelessness
  • provide flexible, efficient and cost-effective housing solutions for homeless people or those at risk of homelessness
  • provide long term housing to enable a homeless person to re-engage with the community and become self-sufficient
  • demonstrate the importance of good design and sustainable practices for low-income affordable housing
  • enable better access to support services by virtue of a fixed address
  • facilitate a constant stream of houses constructed across WA.
