On Friday 8 October, St Bart's is launching its inaugural Say G'day initiative in a bid to highlight the positive impact that a simple act of acknowledgement can make to the people doing it tough on our streets.
St Bart's has been supporting people experiencing homelessness for almost 60 years, and in that time has 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. At the end of the day, we're all human and we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Whether it's individual or corporate, we appreciate any volunteering of your time and skills. Please contact our Volunteer Programs Manager, Warren Nel 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.
