Our History

St Jude’s story began in 1982 with supporting people with psychosocial needs, disability and the homeless. Unlike today, people with disability or psychosocial support needs at the time had limited accommodation options other than hospital or living with their family. Often, people had to stay in hospital for extended periods even if they simply needed basic support or a home rather than psychiatric care.

Recognising this need, Mr Philip John Pusey opened a mental health hostel in Victoria Park in 1982. This was a success and with increased demand, Mr Pusey bought another property in Guildford and developed this into a large mental health facility providing accommodation services for up to 46 people. The new hostel opened in 1987, and was named St Jude’s Hostel by Mr Pusey. Over the years he added additional accommodation options for people requiring supported accommodation. Since the early 1990s a number of new providers, including not-for-profit organisations, commenced supporting people with mental health issues.

In 1996, Mr Pusey recognised the need for a dementia-specific aged care facility. He built a purpose-designed aged care facility to provide a secure, but home-like environment for people with dementia, known as “Guildford Village.” Over the years, this has been a home for hundreds of senior citizens in our community.

In 2010, while demand for hostels continued to grow, the potential of semi-supported small group accommodation options was explored. In the1980s large hostel accommodation was one of the only options available; however, living in the hostel became a lifelong scenario for many people. The opening of small semi-supported accommodation units enabled many people to focus on recovery and capacity building.

In 2015, St Jude’s sought additional supported accommodation for people with disabilities and psychosocial needs. This new accommodation option extends to both long-term and short-term (respite) needs. We now operate over 20 supported accommodation outlets across the North, South and East metropolitan areas and additional supported accommodation is being acquired both in the Perth metropolitan area and the South West region of WA.

In 2017, we opened a community learning centre in Bellevue aimed at capacity building, skills development and recreational use. This centre allows us to provide a range of activities such as cooking and arts and crafts sessions, as well as a gymnasium, a Men’s Shed, a sensory room and a library.

In 2018, St Jude’s Home Care Services began to support people in living independently in their own homes, using home care packages. A wide range of support services, including respite care are available. We also introduced support services for therapy services and support coordination in 2018 using the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). In addition, supported holiday accommodation commenced in Bunbury for people with disabilities to experience a touch of luxury. St Jude’s services continue to expand to regional areas of Western Australia.
