Improving employment participation for welfare recipients facing personal barriers. /

by Perkins, Daniel.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2006Description: 15 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Paper presented by Daniel Perkins to the 39th Social Policy Association Conference, University of Birmingham, July 18-20 2006Summary: There is an increasing recognition that welfare recipients facing significant disadvantage in the labour market are not being well assisted by the conventional labour market programs. Often such job seekers struggle against an interaction of employment and educational barriers combined with a range of personal issues such as mental health problems, substance abuse, criminal records, physical health problems, homelessness, and family breakdown. While there is agreement on the need to provide additional support there is little consensus about what form this should take and whether it can be added to existing programs or requires the development of new initiatives. It is also not clear whether individuals facing personal barriers should be encouraged or required to engage in vocational activities at the same time as addressing personal barriers or whether personal barriers should be addressed prior to providing employment assistance. This paper explores the labour market outcomes for people facing severe personal barriers to employment in Australia the US and Europe. It then considers whether such people want to work, whether work is beneficial or detrimental and examines current policy responses and gaps. The final section of the paper draws primarily on US research to document program elements and models that have been successful in achieving improved employment outcomes for this group.

'Swimming upstream' : young people and service provision under Job Services Australia /

by Rose, Jen | Youth Affairs Council of Victoria | Morstyn, Lisa | Tudehope, Alice.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Youth Affairs Council of Victoria 2011Description: 44 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2011 Bibliography : p. 42-44 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: YACVic has examined the provision of employment services to vulnerable or disadvantaged young people under the Job Services Australia (JSA) program. We have chosen to research this area because of the high rates of youth unemployment in Australia. As of June 2011, young people aged between 15 and 24 years were experiencing an unemployment rate of 11.0 per cent, significantly higher than that of the broader Australian community (4.9 per cent). Our report seeks to assess whether the JSA program is currently meeting the needs of young people in Australia. The report confirms the importance of all generalist and specialised youth JSA service providers adopting best practices when working with young people seeking employment. In addition, the report recommends that the JSA program provides greater recognition of social or non-vocational outcomes achieved by JSA providers for vulnerable young people and that the JSA program encourage JSA providers to adopt an integrated, flexible and highly individualised approach when working with vulnerable young people.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

It examines whether early intervention is associated with improved outcomes, transitions to school, and social and workforce participation later in life. It also examines the use of diagnostic or functional thresholds to determine eligibility for early intervention, and the design features of such a tool, as well as cost implications of expanding current Australian Government funding, such as through the Helping Children with Autism program or Better Start initiative. The report concludes with policy recommendations for government.Availability: (1)
