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.

Recognising this need, Mr Philip John Pusey opened a mental health hostel in Victoria Park, Western Australia in 1982. This was a success and with increased homelessness among people with mental health illness, he developed a property in Guildford into a 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 houses for people requiring supported accommodation. Since the early 1990s, a number of new NGOs have commenced supporting people with mental health issues and homelessness.

In 1996, Mr Pusey opened 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 the local community. Today, this is a premium aged care facility located at the historic Guildford.  

In 2011, Mr Binu Joseph joined St Jude’s. Although demand for psychiatric hostels continued to grow, the potential for alternative accommodation options such as semi-supported small group accommodation options were explored. The opening of small semi-supported accommodation units enabled people with disability to have more independent and flexible accommodation in the community. It allowed St Jude’s focus on recovery and capacity building.

Since 2015, St Jude’s sought additional supported accommodation for people with disability and psychosocial needs. This new accommodation option extends to both long-term and short-term (respite) needs. We now operate over 80 supported accommodation outlets across WA and QLD for NDIS Participants.

In 2017, we opened a community learning centre in Bellevue aimed at capacity building, skills development and recreational use. Due to the increased service demand and requirement for more capacity, this centre is now based at our Midland Office and allows for a range of activities to occur.

In 2018, St Jude’s Home Care Services began to support senior citizens living independently in their own homes, using home care packages through aged care. 

In 2021, St Jude’s expanded the aged care and disability services- NDIS  to Queensland.
