A local not-for-profit housing advocacy group is among the winners from the latest round of Australia Post’s People of Post program.

Just Home Margaret River has received $2000 for a series of upcoming workshops for people facing housing insecurity.

Program manager Galatee Underwood told the Times the funding was welcomed.

“(It) will enable us to support improving mental health outcomes for people experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness in Augusta-Margaret River,” she said.

“We are planning a series of collaborative workshops on this topic to be launched during Homelessness Week in August.”
