Intergenerational homelessness and the intergenerational use of homelessness services. /

by Flatau, Paul | Eardley, Tony | Spooner, Catherine | Forbes, Catherine.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2009Description: PDF.Other title: AHURI Position Paper 119.Summary: This Position Paper looks at the nature, incidence and policy implications of intergenerational homelessness where a person who experiences homelessness also has parents who are or have been homeless at some time. ; Intergenerational homelessness occurs when homelessness is repeated in recurrent generations of the same family. In other words, it occurs when an individual who experiences homelessness in their own right has one or more parents who were also (or are) homeless at some point in their lives. It may well happen that both generations experience homelessness together as a result of the family unit becoming homeless, children being placed in care because of their parents? homelessness and inability to care for their children, or when mothers escape domestic violence with their children. ; Our study seeks to provide evidence on the prevalence, dynamics and structure of tergenerational homelessness. It is important to know whether homelessness has rsisted in either or both generations for long periods of time, or whether it is isodic or one-off in nature. Furthermore, it is important to identify which socio-mographic groups are most likely to experience intergenerational homelessness d what forms of homelessness (primary, secondary or tertiary homelessness) are perienced in the two generations. Finally, it is important to understand the key parent drivers or correlates of intergenerational homelessness. To what extent is tergenerational homelessness associated with substance abuse, domestic violence, severe financial hardship over the generations? How do these factors interact?Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Care-system impacts on academic outcomes : research report /

by Wise, Sarah | Anglicare Victoria. Social Policy and Research Unit | Pollock, Sarah | Mitchell, Gaye | Argus, Cathy | Farquhar, Peta.

Publisher: Collingwood ; Melbourne Anglicare Victoria and Wesley Mission Victoria 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2010 Bibliography : p. 58-61 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Children in out-of-home care are changing schools often, repeating grades, dropping out early and suffering higher rates of mental and physical health conditions which limit their participation at school. Despite the importance of a quality education, children and youth who live away from the families of their birth parents are known to experience poor education outcomes compared to children and young people in the community generally. Although Australian research is somewhat limited, the findings are unequivocal; children in out-of-home care perform academically below what is normal for their age, are at risk of disengaging or are disengaged from school and often don t achieve any academic qualification.Availability: (1)

Hearing directly from vulnerable young Australians /

by Mission Australia.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W.Mission Australia Snapshot 2010 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 7Summary: In 2009, around 48,000 young people across Australia participated in the eighth annual Mission Australia National survey of young Australians. The survey asked young people aged 11 to 24 years about what they value, their concerns, where they go for advice and support and who they admire. This publication focuses on the responses of three more vulnerable groups of young people - those who were homeless, in out-of-home care, or involved in the juvenile justice system. Young people who are homeless, in out-of-home care or in juvenile justice can be vulnerable in a number of areas which are fundamental to wellbeing, including meaningful relationships, educational achievement, secure housing, physical and mental wellbeing and financial security. This publication provides background on these young people, hears directly from them and makes some policy recommendations for enhancing their wellbeing.Availability: (1)
