Boorloo Bidee Mia

Located in the Perth CBD, Boorloo Bidee Mia is a supported accommodation service for rough sleepers.

In collaboration with Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs) Wungening Aboriginal Corporation and Noongar Mia Mia, the Department of Communities has established Boorloo Bidee Mia to provide a culturally appropriate response to the issue of rough sleeping in the Perth metropolitan area.

The name, Boorloo Bidee Mia, represents “Perth pathway to housing” in Whadjuk Noongar language, and embodies the intent of the service to provide residents with the support they need to transition out of homelessness and into stable, long-term accommodation.

Boorloo Bidee Mia has been designed in partnership with Wungening and Noongar Mia Mia to ensure it meets the needs of Aboriginal residents, who are expected to be the primary users of the service.

Boorloo Bidee Mia is a key initiative of our All Paths Lead to a Home: Western Australia’s 10-Year Strategy on Homelessness.
