Placing the social economy. /

by Amin, Ash | Cameron, Angus | Hudson, Ray.

Publisher: London, U.K. Routledge 2002Description: 147 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index. See references to Bromley-by-Bow Centre, p.107,111-112Summary: This book examines the role of the social economy non-profit activities designed to combat social exclusion by selling socially useful goods and services in the marketplace. The authors, geographers by profession, analyse experience of the social economy in the United Kingdom, with particular attention to four urban areas (Bristol, Tower Hamlets in London, Middlesbrough and Glasgow). > > They conclude that there is no model of best practice that can simply be transplanted, partly because local context (for example, the support of the local government authority, or the history of volunteer sector activity) is an important influence, and partly because success may be related to meeting specific local needs rather than to generating a certain number of jobs. They argue that the social economy generally remains highly dependent upon the state, serving as a different way of using and distributing resources than as a way of generating them; and that it tends not to be sustained by local community resources alone. Therefore expectations in the UK and increasingly in the EU that the social economy can be a major source of jobs, regeneration and welfare provision are unrealistic. Instead, the most effective social enterprises can open up new possibilities and networks for people who have been restricted by the limited resources of poor places . The social economy should therefore be strengthened as a sector complementary to both the state and the market, not as a substitute for either.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Welfare expenditure Australia /

by Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 1999 -Summary: Welfare expenditure broadly comprises spending on welfare services and cash payments. Welfare-related aims are also supported by tax expenditures or foregone revenue such as tax exemptions, offsets and deductions that can be claimed for certain activities or by particular classes of taxpayer. Expenditure on both welfare services and cash payments has been based on who the payments or services are targeted at, using the ABS Government Purpose Classification (GPC) for financial transactions for welfare services. The four target groups are families and children, older people, people with disability, and others (such as Indigenous Australians, widows, refugees and migrants). ; Cash payments (or benefits) include pensions, carer allowances and parenting payments which provide income support for older people, people with disability, people who provide care for others, families with children, and war veterans and their families. One-off payments such as those made as part of the Economic Security Strategy are also included. ; Welfare services comprise services for which payments are made, for example child care services, or home and community care services for older people or people with disability. Spending on welfare services includes employee expenses, program costs, concessions and fees that clients paid. Assistance provided to meet child care costs, such as the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Tax Rebate is included in welfare services. Welfare spending, defined according to the four GPC welfare services categories, does not include all government spending on welfare services programs. For example, some programs relevant to people with disability are in GPC categories of education, health or housing.Availability: No items available

Toward a better understanding of social entrepreneurship : some important distinctions. /

by Boschee, Jerr | McClurg, Jim.

Publisher: [Washington, DC] Social Enterprise Alliance 2003Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.se-alliance.org/better_understanding.pdf' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:43:28 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: This paper teases out some important distinctions between innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship. It suggests that social entrepreneurship is a frequently used but often misunderstood phrase in the non-profit sector today. Innovation is valuable but unless innovations result in self-sufficiency (as opposed to sustainability) the authors question whether it is entrepreneurship.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
