Life chances and parents' employment /

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 2003Description: 10 leaves.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence's longitudinal study, the Life Chances Study, provides data to explore what has happened to the employment and incomes of a small but diverse group of Australian families with young children between 1990 and 2002. While studies such as HILDA (Scutella & Wooden 2003) will trace employment patterns for large numbers of people over a period of time, the Life Chances Study can illustrate the trends in terms of the life stories of the families involved. Its 12-year time span gives it particular value. The paper draws on both the quantitative and qualitative data of the study to examine the patterns of employment and income of the families over 12 years. It examines first the overall patterns of employment. It then looks more closely at the experiences of the families who were on low-incomes at the commencement of the study and asks to what extent employment has provided a path out of poverty. Implications for policy are outlined.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Refugees and regional settlement : balancing priorities

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Stanovic, Dayane.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: vi, 61 p.Online Access: Electronic copy | Summary Notes: May 2005 Summary: "Refugees have become one distinctive face of social exclusion at the beginning of the 21st century. Australia's response to people seeking refuge is an indicator of progress made towards the inclusive and compassionate society which is the vision of the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Part of the Brotherhood's research has been to explore different ways of thinking about the definitions and measurement of disadvantage and to draw attention to the experience of groups who are unable to participate fully in Australian society. The research informing this report develops our work in applying a social exclusion framework (examining resources, relationships and rights)in this instance to an analysis of the settlement experience of refugees in regional Victoria. Promoting refugees' inclusion by linking them to the workforce and development needs of various regions in Victoria is a policy solution with considerable appeal to governments. But will the refugees find work and be made welcome in Victoria's country towns? This report examines the refugee settlement experience in Shepparton, Colac and Warrnambool. Taylor and Stanovic's richly layered account shows that policy planners contemplating future settlements need to think not only about the usual range of issues that migrants encounter regarding employment, housing, income and language, but also about concerns specific to refugees. ; The report also highlights two other aspects of the Brotherhood's vision of an inclusive society. First, it shows the need for careful planning of joined-up services, with the participation of refugee communities. Governments must act to ensure that the necessary community capacity is in place. Second, it demonstrates the need to invest in social programs in tandem with planning economic development, to ensure the employment and learning opportunities which are ultimately vital to social inclusion." -- Forward by Paul SmythAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).
