FREO NOT DONATING TO HOMELESS BOXES

Posted in charity, city of fremantle, homeless by freoview on February 3, 2017

The five colourful Donate Without A Doubt collection boxes for the homeless the City of Fremantle installed around the CBD are less than successful.

The CoF reports that $ 8747.00 was donated to St Patrick’s in 2016 and half of that is the dollar for dollar match by the City.

It means that less than $ 12.00 a day was collected from the public in the five boxes, or $ 2.40 per box.

There is also little evidence it has helped to reduce beggars in the CBD.

LONG TABLE DINNER IN FREO’S HISTORIC WEST END

Posted in charity, christmas, fremantle, heritage by freoview on November 24, 2016

 

The first Fremantle Long Table Dinner in historic High Street looked absolutely stunning with little port cranes carrying Christmas presents and all lit up.

This is a fantastic event that should become an annual one and all the way to the Roundhouse.

Well done to all who worked so hard to make this happen!!

FREO DONATION BOXES LITTLE HELP FOR BEGGARS

Posted in beggars, charity, city of fremantle, homelessness, local government by freoview on October 6, 2016

No matter what positive spin the City of Fremantle puts up about the five charity donation boxes in Fremantle, to discourage street begging, they have been less than successful.

Five colourful boxes were installed in mid February this year but the total sum donated to the St Patrick’s Community Centre up to October 3 has only been $ 7,126.70. That included the City matching public donations dollar for dollar.

This ends up being only $ 3.96 per day, so not even two dollar per day from the public, who clearly continue to donate to individual beggars, although we see fewer of them after safety officers have been moving them on.

There are no easy solutions to combat homelessness and street begging, but it is clear that the donation boxes in Fremantle have done very little to improve the funds at St Patricks as four dollars a day does not even buy a meal for one single beggar.

Victor Crevatin, Director of Homelessness and Support Services at St Patrick’s Community Support Centre, will be the speaker for the July edition of The Fremantle Network‘s speaker series.

It is on tomorrow Tuesday 12th July from 5.30 for a 6pm start upstairs at The National Hotel.

Victor will be sharing some of his insights into the state of homelessness in Fremantle, and will also look into the future towards what we can do to alleviate some of the pressure.

The Speakers Series of the Fremantle Network is very interesting and is also a chance to network with the Freo community, business community.
