Governance models for location based initiatives /

by Australian Social Inclusion Board.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Social Inclusion Board 2011Description: 66 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 63-66 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Place-based approaches to addressing disadvantage are a key element of the Australian Government's Social Inclusion Agenda. One of its six social inclusion priorities is to 'focus on the locations of greatest disadvantage by tailoring place-based approaches in partnership with the community'. In addition, its Social Inclusion Principles include an emphasis on using locational approaches. Location-based approaches are widely used overseas and increasingly in Australia. However, based on a review of the relevant literature and program evaluations and discussions with practitioners, it appears that these initiatives tend to face common problems which limit their potential. This paper argues that these problems occur partly because the problem solving approach governments typically take is not well suited to addressing entrenched, multifaceted disadvantage found in these locations. While this standard approach may work well to address less complex problems, a community development focused approach may be more successful in addressing the most entrenched location-based disadvantage.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
