• The Salvation Army’s Beacon accommodation to get 25 new beds in 2018


    The Salvation Army’s homeless accommodation centre, The Beacon, has had a successful start to the year, with the State Government announcing plans in February to fund an additional 25 beds for the centre.

    The Beacon provides personalised support, accommodation and referral pathways to adults at risk of or experiencing homelessness, with the purpose of helping them transition into independent community living.

    Warren Palmer, Divisional Public Relations Secretary at The Salvation Army, said he was delighted that the State Government has agreed to fund 25 new beds at The Beacon for three years.

    “This will enable not only an additional 25 beds, but additional staff that will ensure strong case management. This will allow us to reduce the case load for other staff therefore improving outcomes as well as continuing to build a comprehensive wrap around service adding value to the investment," Mr Palmer said.
