Life chances and parents' employment /

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 2003Description: 10 leaves.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence's longitudinal study, the Life Chances Study, provides data to explore what has happened to the employment and incomes of a small but diverse group of Australian families with young children between 1990 and 2002. While studies such as HILDA (Scutella & Wooden 2003) will trace employment patterns for large numbers of people over a period of time, the Life Chances Study can illustrate the trends in terms of the life stories of the families involved. Its 12-year time span gives it particular value. The paper draws on both the quantitative and qualitative data of the study to examine the patterns of employment and income of the families over 12 years. It examines first the overall patterns of employment. It then looks more closely at the experiences of the families who were on low-incomes at the commencement of the study and asks to what extent employment has provided a path out of poverty. Implications for policy are outlined.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

How the Family Centre Project changed the image of poverty in Victoria. /

by Benn, Concetta | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: 10 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: From: Wednesday Lunchtime Seminars, 29 September 2004.Summary: The work of the Brotherhood of St Laurence has affected the prevailing image of poverty in Victoria since Father Tucker (the founder of BSL began his anti-slum campaign in 1935. Thirty years later, in the sixties, BSL was one of the few major agencies providing services for the poor people of Victoria. During this thirty years Father Tucker, Bishop- Sambell and David Scott through their social action and public relations efforts ensured that BSL actions and initiatives were noticed by other social reformers and by all levels of government. The high reputation and skills of BSL social workers and youth workers over the years also ensured that their methods of practice were recorded and copied by educational institutions and other agencies. By the mid-sixties services to poor families were delivered through the Social Work Service and the Youth and Children's Centre, where six social workers and eight youth workers were employed. The Social Work Service had an open door policy which resulted in an annual caseload of approximately 600 families, most of whom came for financial assistance. The Youth and Children's Centre activities were open and over 300 young people were known to the service.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Publisher: Hawthorn, Vic.

Working with Indigenous children, families, and communities : lessons from practice /

by Price-Robertson, Rhys | Australian Institute of Family Studies | McDonald, Myfanwy.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2011 Bibliography : p. 7 This report was produced in partnership with Peter Lewis & Muriel Bamblett of the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care AgencySummary: Planning and delivering services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families, and communities can be a complex task for practitioners and policy-makers. Social problems are often deeply entrenched, and need to be approached with consideration of historical, social, community, family and individual factors. Furthermore, as Australian Indigenous cultures are not homogenous, Indigenous communities can differ considerably. Indigenous communities often have characteristics specific to geographic location, with significant variation evident across urban, rural, and remote communities.Availability: (1)
