Shaping services to community needs : a case study of Atherton Gardens Public Housing Estate, Fitzroy. /

by Fernandes, Nora.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1999Description: 75 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 2000Summary: The Shaping Services to Community Needs study seeks to understand the complexities of high-rise living, from the time the high-rise estates were built to the present. The focus of the study is the Atherton Gardens public housing estate, its community structures, the service providers and local government agencies involved with the community. The study is located within a wider context of migrant and refugee arrivals in Victoria, housing and welfare policy development and welfare service provision in Fitzroy. The Atherton Gardens estate was selected because it represents a culturally and linguistically diverse community, with a high proportion on welfare benefits and is located in close proximity to a number of welfare organisations and services. A case study approach was used to enable the situation to be explored in its totality, and data was collected through semi-structured interviews with estate residents, observation, interviews with service agencies, archival study and review of current literature on housing, immigration and economic policy. For refugee and humanitarian arrivals in Victoria, housing need combines with other disadvantages, such as lack of physical and educational resources to invest in a new future, psychological distress from experiences of war, flight and dislocation and unfamiliarity with language and practices in Australia. In recent years, the majority of refugee and migrant arrivals in Victoria come from countries such as Yugoslavia, Vietnam, New Zealand, China, United Kingdom. Under the humanitarian program, a number of settlers (2844 in 1998-99) arrived from Bosnia, Horn of Africa and Iraq, more than half of whom were women.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
