Hub Connections

Poverty, hardship and homelessness can affect anyone at any time in their life, often as a result of circumstances beyond their control. Many people may not know where to find help.

The City of Bayswater has established Hub Connections at Morley Library as place-based response to respond and prevent homelessness. The City of Bayswater is not a community service provider.

Our trained City of Bayswater Hub Connector volunteers will be available to listen and help. The volunteers will provide information and assist with connecting you to a community service provider that matches your needs.

Hub Connections

Address: Morley Library, 240 Walter Road West, Morley

Operating times:




 10am–1pm, 3.30–6.30pm



  • Closed public holidays and other scheduled Morley Library closures.

Seeking volunteers

We are looking for people with empathy who can be generous with their time to engage with people experiencing or at risk of homelessness and connect them with services and information. The Hub Connector volunteer role will be varied and dynamic. This role would suit people of all ages including those who have a community service background or a background in nursing/medicine/psychology/occupational therapy/social work/social science or who have a certificate IV in mental health or students seeking experience with vulnerable people from all walks of life. 

Our volunteers assist for between three and nine hours a week during the above times the Hub is operating. 

We would love to hear from you if you can:

  • demonstrate excellent communication and listening skills
  • show empathy and have a non-judgemental attitude
  • volunteer for 3-9 hours a week 

 Being a Hub Connector will offer you the opportunity to:

  • connect and give back to the community
  • develop your practical counselling skills
  • develop trauma-informed engagement approaches
  • increase emotional intelligence capacity through self-awareness
  • pursue further career opportunities in this area

National Homelessness Week 2023

National Homelessness Week is held from 7 to 11 August annually across Australia to raise awareness of homelessness and its impacts on our community. The City understands poverty, hardship or homelessness can occur at any time in a person’s life.

In recognition of National Homelessness Week 2023, the City hosted an engaging and informative talk from guest speaker Matt Vapor at Morley Library on Friday 11 August from 10 to 11am. Matt shared his experiences of homelessness and the accompanying difficulties being homeless creates in later life, with the aim of challenging and changing perceptions.

On Tuesday 8 August and Wednesday 9 August, the City's Hub Connector volunteers were outside Morley Galleria Woolworths sharing information on the City's Hub Connections program and distributing the updated Caring for our Community booklet. 

Caring for our Community

The City of Bayswater is committed to ensuring community members who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness have the information they need to connect to free community services.

Homelessness includes:

  • Rough sleeping
  • Stays in supported accommodation for the homeless
  • Couch-surfing
  • Living in boarding and rooming houses without private facilities and security of tenure
  • Heavy reliance on short-term stays in motels, hotels and other forms of temporary lodging.

The City of Bayswater is committed to working in collaboration with local service providers, businesses, community groups, and state and local government authorities to address local homelessness and offer the support people need.

This resource provides useful links to help those at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

Mentally Healthy WA, based at Curtin University, has a webpage containing links to many helpful resources, including apps, books, guided meditations, magazines, online courses, podcasts and videos, to name a few.
