Publisher: [Adelaide, S.A.?] National Shelter 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Marginal Tenures Policy Paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2011 Prepared by 99 Consulting for National ShelterSummary: This is a policy paper on boarding houses, caravan parks & other marginal housing tenures. Approximately 75,000 Australians live in boarding houses and caravan parks, and the majority of these are highly disadvantaged. While some households choose these forms of housing for reasons of lifestyle or location, they often serve as housing of last resort? for individuals and households who are on the verge of homelessness. Evidence on supply trends in these sectors is mixed. Formal sources of data, most of them incomplete, report either small declines in supply or a steady state. Those working in the field, however, have consistently reported continued loss of stock.Availability: (1)

Mental health : Submission to the Senate Select Committee /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 2005; Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2004Summary: The BSL welcomes this opportunity to contribute to the Inquiry by the Senate Select Committee on Mental Health. Although not a mental health service provider, many of the people with whom the BSL works are living with mental health problems, contributing to the disadvantage they experience. The Terms of Reference are broader than BSL experience or expertise. This submission, therefore, focuses on those Terms of Reference of greatest relevance to our work and to the lives of the people we support. Our starting point is that many people living with a mental illness experience levels of exclusion and discrimination that are unacceptable?and addressing the complexity of issues that compound this exclusion requires concerted leadership and action by all levels of government..Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

Why standard assessment processes are culturally inappropriate : perspectives of professionals from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, non-government agencies and government departments. /

by Bromfield, Leah M | Higgins, Jenny R | Higgins, Daryl J.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2007Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Cover title. Includes bibliographical references (p. 8)Summary: Standard assessment processes have a dual purpose. They are designed to determine a carer?s capacity to provide care within a framework of mainstream (Anglo-European) culture, parenting values and family life, as well as middle-class living standards. They are also designed to screen out undesirable carers such as those who are likely to abuse children or expose them to adverse situations (e.g., violence or crime). However, when attempting to assess carers within in an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander context, standard assessment procedures are unsuitable as they fail to elicit relevant information, and overlook the cultural needs of Indigenous children in care.Availability: (1)
