RMA attend Homelessness Week

There is always something you can do

Early in August, two Rental Management Australia representatives attended an evening hosted by Shelter WA which detailed ideas on how landlords can help make a difference to the homeless and at risk community in WA.

National Manager Business Development Sandi Regis and South Perth Business Development Manager Maggie Petrie attended the event held on Thursday 9 August at the Rise. 

Here they learnt some startling facts. More than 9,000 people are experiencing homelessness every night in WA, and another 7,000 people living in insecure housing, one step away from homelessness. 

National Manager Business Development Sandi Regis comments on the event. 

"Homelessness does not discriminate - it touches people of all ages, genders, cultures and regions throughout Western Australia," said Sandi.

"Together with organisations like Shelter WA, we’re focusing on the things people can do that will end homelessness, and support people who are experiencing homelessness."

RMA will look for ways to help create awareness and support around the issues affecting our communities.

"Rental Management Australia proudly support a person or family to gain an offer on their potential home. We are flexible with our terms and happily work with our home owners to create a rental agreement which works for everyone involved". 

Guest Speakers included Aunty Millie Penny, an Elder Co-Researcher with the Telethon Kids Institute’s Ngulluk Koolunga Ngulluk Koort (Our Children Our Heart), Trish Blake of the Department for Mines,  Stephanie Hing representing the RSPCA, and Diana MacTiernan of the Equal Opportunity Commission.

Kate Davis of Tenancy WA and final speaker Sadie Davidson of the Real Estate Industry of WA also presented on the evening.
