Kieran Wong appointed to the Board of Shelter WA

TF.A Partner, Kieran Wong, has been appointed to the Board of Shelter WA, a peak body that advocates for social and affordable housing and an end to homelessness. Shelter WA is overseen by a coalition of people with diverse experience who are united in their commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable West Australians. Kieran’s motivation for joining the Board is found in his enduring commitment to ‘be useful’.

I am always on the lookout for ways to leverage my design skills for social impact. I’ve long been interested in housing models, housing typologies and the often-strange systems that conspire to exclude or limit a person’s ability to access safe, secure and quality housing. It has always struck me that in a place like WA there can be such challenges to ensuring everyone has a place to call home. I hope that through Shelter WA, I can assist to amplify the voices of those in the sector to provide equity, choice and availability of housing for all.
