Mandurah Common Ground in WA will offer supportive housing for homeless adults. The Common Ground will be made up of 50 self-contained apartments with indoor and outdoor communal areas and on-site services for residents.
The Mandurah Common Ground is the second of two common grounds under development. The first to be built in East Perth. The Western Australian government has pledged $28.1 million to the project.
The Common Ground model of support is a solution to chronic homelessness. It combines on-site support services, accommodating ex-homelessness people and low-incomes adults. The Common Grounds are a component of the WA Government’s first state strategy dedicated to homelessness, All Paths Lead to a Home: Western Australia’s 10-year Strategy on Homelessness 2020-2030.
The concept design is by a local architect called Gresley Abas and has integrated environmental stability. The town planners and architect have involved the stakeholders throughout the concept and design process.
The Common Ground will also consider the inclusion of commercial spaces for local businesses or social enterprises. These will be include co-located service organisations and shared function meeting rooms.
The WA Government with support from the Federal Government has now committed $73.5 million to the Common Ground facilities being developed in WA.
