Good morning readers, and thank you for joining us again. I’m Holly Thompson and I’m taking over the blog for today.

On the news in Perth and the state government has been questioning why WA organizations have been largely forgotten during the recent federal ILC round of individual capacity building through the Department of Social Services.

We also bring you a story full of jaw-dropping statistics from property reporter Sarah Brookes, who reveals Perth’s record-breaking new average house price, even as property supply continues to fall.

Perth’s mayor has sparked a war of words with the Minister for Housing and Homelessness over a safe overnight space in Perth whose doors remain closed even as temperatures drop and rain pounds the streets.

City of Perth Mayor Basil Zempilas and Homelessness Minister John Carey have clashed over safe overnight space.
