Supporting RUAH community art workshops in Mandurah

16 Feb 2016

Access Housing is proudly sponsoring RUAH Mental Health community art workshops in Mandurah as part of lead-in events to the city’s Stretch Arts Festival, which commences in May.

The Stretch Arts Festival is a City of Mandurah initiative that offers a range of projects, events, performances, workshops, cultural experiences, high quality arts experiences and learning opportunities.

RUAH Mental Health is hosting three workshops under the banner of ‘A Light on Mandurian Stories’ in the coming weeks. More information about the workshops can be found by clicking here

RUAH Mental Health (part of RUAH Community Services) is a non-government, community based service that provides a comprehensive range of support programs to people who experience mental health illness, their family members and carers.

RUAH is a partner of Access Housing and provides support to our Independent Living Program (ILP) tenants in the Peel region.

The ILP is a WA Mental Health Commission-funded, community based program that provides tailored support to individuals aged 18-60 that are living with severe and persistent mental health illness to live independently in a rented Access Housing property. Through the ILP, Access Housing provides tenants with safe, secure housing in an area of their choice within the Perth metropolitan area or Peel region and supports them to sustain their tenancy while also encouraging them to engage with service providers and/or family to support them in their recovery from mental health illness.

To learn more about the Independent Living Program, please contact either our head office in Fremantle on 9430 0900 or our Peel region office in Mandurah on 9534 0400.
