committed to community resilience

Our history and future

Today, Accordwest is firmly established as a community support organisation, providing a diverse range of life-changing accommodation, family, relationship and counselling support services. Read on to discover more about our proud history of community service, as well as our future.

From humble beginnings

Our organisation started out as the Homeless Youth Accommodation Service in 1983, with a focus on providing accommodation and housing services in the South West of Western Australia (WA).

Since then, our organisation has continually evolved, changing our name to ASWA before becoming Accordwest in 2011. In that time we also diversified our service portfolio to meet the changing needs of the communities we serve in WA, while our geographical reach has developed considerably too.

Our organisation today

In 2010, our organisation supported and empowered almost 12,000 people, with services spanning housing, family, relationship and substance abuse.

As we move forward, focusing on the vision and values that have brought us and our clients so far, we continue to provide an increasingly diverse and comprehensive suite of community support services. That’s why we undertook an important rebranding project in 2010/2011.

The future, as Accordwest

While the ASWA brand was well-known and respected, in 2011 we implemented a complete brand overhaul to reflect the changing and progressive nature of our organisation. This included developing a new name (Accordwest) and look that will enable us to take our support network to the next level.

Our new branding communicates our innovative culture more effectively, marking a new era for our organisation - an era in which we will continue to diversify, both geographically and in terms of the community support services we deliver.
