The Great White North and Voluntary Action: Canada's relationship with Beveridge, social welfare, and social justice / Peter R. Elson Includes index Donated by Paul SmythSummary: "The relationship between the state and the voluntary sector has changed significantly since 1948 when Beveridge's major report, Voluntary Action, was first published. Sixty years later, a group of historians analyse and reassess the impact of Beveridge's ideas about voluntary action for social advance in this timely volume. Using examples from the UK, Australasia and Canada, this book clearly articulates the importance and significance of Beveridge's ideas on voluntary action within an international context. ; With the emphasis of governments on the importance of the voluntary or 'third sector' and the development of policies and practices to enhance social capital, build civil society and engage communities, this book will be invaluable for those interested in how the third sector has evolved over time. It will be of interest to historians, social policy researchers, political theorists, economists and educationalists." -- Publisher webpageAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Volunteering. Why we can't survive without it. /

by Oppenheimer, Melanie.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. UNSW Press 2008Summary: One third of Australians volunteer on a regular basis. This means that more than 5 million Australians are regularly coaching local sports teams, working in the school P&C, planting trees in their local Bush Care group, managing email lists for political or community groups and so on. This book tells the story of volunteering in Australia since WWII across many kinds of organisations and argues that we have a unique way of volunteering in Australia. Using the examples of her grandmother who was one of the founders of the CWA and her mother who was very active as a volunteer in WWII, Melanie Oppenheimer shows that women have often been central to keeping communities going through their unpaid work. She also shows that volunteers need to be better recognised. The 2020 summit and Australia's first minister for volunteering shows the governments are starting to realise this"--Provided by publisher.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
