Role Title: Research Intern: Moorditj Mia Housing & Homelessness Program
Organisation: Noongar Mia Mia
Internship Period: Semester 2 (August - November)
As a result of some collective impact workshops with various ACCO NFPs, with the goal of coming together to address key homelessness risk factors, Noongar Mia Mia is now lead agency in a Consortium of ACCO NFPs delivering support services to rough sleepers in Perth Metro.
We would like our Research Intern to conduct research to establish the effectiveness of this intervention, and develop a report on the project, its activities and outcomes.
Our mission is to contribute towards socioeconomic inclusion of First Nations people in Western Australia by setting the right foundations to thrive. We create pathways for First Nations people in the Southwest of Western Australia from homelessness to home ownership in a respectful, culturally-appropriate fashion aligned with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, through a whole-of-person wraparound model of cultural housing, property management, psychosocial support, advocacy and collaboration, acknowledging the complexity of factors leading to Indigenous homelessness. We embed Aboriginal culture into all we do, and amplify the voices of our mob – nothing for us, without us.
