Transition to retirement : a guide to inclusive practice /

by Stancliffe, Roger J. et al.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Sydney University Press 2013Description: 162 p.: ill, dvd.Notes: Includes DVD - Australian Foundation for Disability (AFFORD) 2011Summary: As much as everyone groans from time to time about the humdrum and stresses of work, retirement is an unsettling prospect for most people. It's a major transition in anyone's life and change of this magnitude often arouses anxiety. This is much more so for people with disability, particularly intellectual disability. ; But, as this manual shows, it doesn't have to be like that. The Transition to Retirement (TTR) program has been developed in response to a genuine problem: the need for an effective approach to supporting older employees to build an active, socially inclusive lifestyle after retirement. The approach mapped out in this manual may not be the solution for all workers with disability, but it will certainly assist quite a few. ; The TTR program emphasises social inclusion. It is consistent with the focus of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on building community participation and independence. It is also consistent with the National Disability Strategy's emphasis on promoting social inclusion in mainstream community settings and service systems. The TTR program supports ageing people with disability to develop new interests, skills and social networks, and facilitates their participation in mainstream community groups. ; The manual includes a DVD, which makes the idea of inclusive activities in retirement easily understandable to people with disability, their families and community organisations.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: This book is a broad introduction to Australian politics and public policy.

It is also important for analysts outside Australia looking for comparative cases. Within this volume are diverse topics and perspectives, demonstrating that the study of Australian politics and policy is not ‘fixed’. Rather, it is a contested field of academic scholarship.

Buying and Selling the Poor : Inside Australia's privatised welfare-to-work market / Siobhan Sullivan, Michael McGann and Mark Considine

by O'Sullivan, Siobhan | McGann, Michael | Considine, Mark.

Publisher: Sydney, NSW : Sydney University Press, 2021Description: 284 p. ; 21 cm.Summary: Buying and Selling the Poor ventures behind the scenes of the multibillion-dollar welfare-to-work system, offering new insights into how Australia responds to unemployment and disadvantage. As the authors tell the story of four local employment offices, they paint a vivid picture of a critically important social service which many people are aware of but which few properly understand. They also reveal the wider impacts that processes of marketisation and welfare reform have had on these frontline services over decades, and how the work of frontline staff and service providers has been transformed. Buying and Selling the Poor looks closely at how these services operate, why some succeed where others fail, and what can be learned from the stories of local staff and clients who have navigated the system. Three decades into this market experiment, how well are we doing in supporting our most vulnerable citizens to get back to work?Availability: No items available Checked out (1).
