Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 576 asked in the Legislative Council on 31 August 2021 by Hon Steve Martin

Parliament: 41 Session: 1


576. Hon STEVE MARTIN to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Community Services:

I refer to the state government's new 100-bed homeless service at 300 Wellington Street, Perth.

(1) What is the current occupancy rate?

(2) If the facility is not fully occupied currently, when would the minister expect that to occur?

Hon SAMANTHA ROWE replied:

I thank the member for some notice of the question. I provide the following answer on behalf of the Minister for Community Services.

(1) Boorloo Bidee Mia is still undergoing building works to bring the facility to maximum capacity. The first floor is operational and is at full capacity.

(2) The building works on Boorloo Bidee Mia are expected to be completed on 30 September 2021. The number of residents accommodated at Boorloo Bidee Mia at any given time will be dependent on the support needs of residents, with the delivery of a safe, culturally appropriate and effective service being a priority at all times.
