On Friday 6 October 2023, St Bart’s is hosting its Say G’day initiative in a bid to highlight the positive impact a simple acknowledgment can have on the people doing it tough on our streets.
St Bart’s has been supporting people experiencing homelessness for 60 years and, in that time, we have heard countless stories of their feelings of worthlessness when members of the public turn their gaze, cross the street, and make imaginary phone calls in an attempt to avoid contact with them.
Homelessness doesn’t discriminate. No matter your age, race, sex or previous status – it can happen to anyone. And at the end of the day, we’re all human and we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
The Say G’day initiative precedes three important dates in the annual calendar; WA Mental Health Week from October 7-14, and both World Mental Health Day and World Homeless Day on October 10.
Whether it's individual or corporate, we appreciate any volunteering of your time and skills. Please contact our Volunteer Programs Manager, Carla Mele at St Bart's and make a difference today.
$2 or $200 every dollar counts. We appreciate any donations made to St Bart's and together we can bring change to many West Australian's doing it tough.
