Collins Dove 1989Description: 178p.Notes: See also: Submisssion to the National Wage Case, Brotherhood of St Laurence, Fitzroy, 1966 in which this book was an additional attachment. Summary: Long before Prime Minister John Howard claimed to be on the side of the battlers , many Australians knew from personal experience what it meant to struggle with real poverty. This book from the late 1980s draws on the stories of 57 families who agreed to keep detailed records of their income and expenditure for a year, so that others might understand the effects of poverty on people s lives. Readers in later decades might well ask themselves how much has changed since Aussie battlers was written.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (3).

Towards the development of a national agenda for early childhood : submission to the Commonwealth Task Force on Child Development, Health and Wellbeing / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Carbone, Stephen.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. unpub. 2003; Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2003Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2003 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Early childhood is a crucial period in human development, during which the foundations for future wellbeing are established. In its mission of working for an Australia free of poverty, the Brotherhood of St Laurence acknowledges the importance of providing comprehensive services and supports to children and their parents during these critical early years, not just for their immediate benefits, but also to prevent the development of future difficulties. At present, early childhood services across Australia are characterised by a lack of integration and coordination (OECD 2001). Three levels of government, operating through a number of program areas (e.g. health, community services, education) are involved in policy, funding and regulation and a range of providers are responsible for services. This has led to a service system that is fragmented and hard to navigate. In addition, not everyone finds equal value in the use of existing antenatal and early childhood services. Often those who could most benefit from these services, to help moderate the effects of the stressful or disadvantaged environments in which they live, have less access, or experience a service response that is insensitive, or fails to meet their needs (Ochiltree 1999). Specific efforts are required to create antenatal and early childhood services, which better address the needs of ALL children and parents, particularly those who are more vulnerable. It is also vital that these services are better linked to each other and to other service systems. In our role as a provider of innovative early childhood services and as a research organisation with a strong focus on children and disadvantage, the Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the consultation paper and strongly endorses the development of a National Agenda for Early Childhood. This national framework is urgently required in order to demonstrate Australia’s commitment to our children and to provide a clear ‘road-map’ for promoting better outcomes for Australia’s children and their families.
