The Peer Advocacy Office is located downstairs at The Table on the same floor as the Good Food Bank. The office is run by Peer Advocates - community members with their own experiences living on low-incomes and navigating government programs. They receive training from The Table, typically including our Community Action Training as well as other specialized training sessions.

Advocates are available to offer resources, referrals, and support on a wide array of issues from replacing lost identification, to helping fill out paperwork, to conducting a housing search. The office is open to all community members and no appointment is needed.

For more information on the services the Community Advocacy Office offers please check out the Community Advocacy Office page, called Perth Advocates on Facebook.

The documentary film Beyond Crisis, a call to action on the world's greatest social and ecological crisis being faced, and an exploration of how a just response to the climate crisis could create INCREDIBLE society-wide opportunities. Diving into some of the main causes and much-needed remedies to this global crisis, this film also explores our shared human response to large-scale change, along with the incredible potential of climate solutions to safeguard life on earth, create good work, protect human rights, promote justice and generally improve our shared world beyond our wildest imagination. Beyond Crisis is a grassroots, highly personal montage of voices from dozens of leaders for climate and clean energy action, to be used to create momentum for change around the world. As a 1-hour film, we do not claim to present all sides of this complex story, but are aiming to be a spark that helps facilitate deeper dialogue and meaningful action everywhere.
