The Spirit of the Streets Choir is well known in Perth as an inspirational choir that draws its membership from people who experience social disadvantage, isolation and stigma as a result of their circumstances. This may include mental illness, recovery from addiction, disability, and long term unemployment. Some members have experienced homelessness and others are statistically at risk. Most participants are unemployed, have limited income and often struggle to afford basic necessities; holidays, concerts, training, social outings and things that others take for granted are unaffordable, which adds to their exclusion from society. The membership has now been increased to include a wider network of people who suffer from general social disadvantage.
