It suggests that the current policy framework is unable to effectively balance economic and social goals and that governments need to go beyond the present short-term economic outlook and be more active in shaping society. The writers argue for targeted interventions from government to create employment which generates substantial social and environmental benefits, whilst also improving Australia's long-term economic performance. ; This BSL discussion paper examines the change in values informing public policy in Australia over the last 25 years.

Social Inclusion and the Struggle against Child Poverty : Lessons from Australian Experience /

by Cass, Bettina | University of New South Wales. Social Policy Research Centre | Whiteford, Peter.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. University of New South Wales, Social Policy Research Centre (unpub.) 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 10-12 Paper for Expert Group Meeting on Policies to Advance Social Integration United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs Division for Social Policy and Development Social Perspective on Development Branch Convened in Preparation for the 48th session of the Commission for Social Development United Nations Headquarters, New York, 2-4 November 2009.Summary: In this paper, our aim is to bring forward the lessons that can be learned from more than two decades of Australian experience in the struggle against child poverty. We focus on child poverty for a number of reasons. The priority given to this issue in public policy debates reflects the fact that children are among the most vulnerable people in the community, and that poverty is associated with a wide range of negative outcomes for parents and children, including higher risks of joblessness, poorer health status and lower educational attainment, elevated financial and emotional stress for lone parents. These links are complex, however, and causation can run both ways - that is, poverty causes disadvantage and disadvantages can also cause poverty.Availability: (1)

This new report gives a snapshot of how the Government is delivering on social inclusion. What you'll read is just a sample of the work that's being done because every action the Government takes is focused on the building blocks of social inclusion: a strong economy and a strong society that leaves no one behind.

Submission to the Senate Community Affairs Legislation Committee regarding the Social Security Legislation Amendment (Stronger Penalties for Serious Failures) Bill 2014 / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Nicholson, Tony.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2014Description: 6 p. PDF.Other title: Social Security Legislation Amendment (Stronger Penalties for Serious Failures) Bill 2014.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence has a long history of assisting jobseekers facing disadvantage in the labour market to find work, gain skills and plan career pathways. We consider this an essential part of our work to end poverty. We are currently designing and delivering cutting-edge programs which connect young people to the world of work and support their transitions from education to employment. Our approach to working with young people is premised on five key understandings. Young people want to work and have mainstream aspirations but some become discouraged and fall into bad habits when left to their own devices for long periods. It is our responsibility as service providers to foster these aspirations. Young people thrive when their talents and capabilities are recognised. They benefit from rapid re engagement. This ensures they are linked to services and employment opportunities. The complex nature of today's labour market and education systems means that young people need careers guidance and support to develop employability skills.Availability: (1)
