Assessment of service needs and provision for public housing tenants in Carlton.

by Bergman, Drew.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Ecumenical Migration Centre, Brotherhood of St Laurence 2001Description: 62 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The focus of the following report is upon the needs of tenants at the Carlton Public Housing Estate, and upon public housing policy in Victoria. There are three main objectives of this work: ■ to determine the needs of the Carlton Estate community and the availability of services; ■ to critically evaluate the public housing policy of Victoria as it relates to the Carlton Estate; and ■ to provide a limited sense of the community of Carlton, some of the Housing Estate tenants and the area service providers. For the purposes of this report, the Carlton Public Housing Estate refers to the area bordered by Princes, Rathdowne, Lygon, and Neill Streets, as well as the two high-rise flats on the corner of Palmerston and Nicholson Streets. The main concern of the research has been to compare the policy intentions of public housing with the living reality of the situation. It attempts to determine some of the main strengths and weaknesses of public housing provision as seen by tenants, private service providers, and Ministry of Housing workers.

This paper examines the literature regarding disadvantaged job seekers and barriers to employment in areas such as poor health and physical disability, mental health, domestic violence, substance abuse and lack of social support. It then looks at the policy context and program approaches in Australia, the United States and the European Union. Common elements of good practice are highlighted and implications for PSP in Australia are identified.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Collins Dove 1989Description: 178p.Notes: See also: Submisssion to the National Wage Case, Brotherhood of St Laurence, Fitzroy, 1966 in which this book was an additional attachment.

This book from the late 1980s draws on the stories of 57 families who agreed to keep detailed records of their income and expenditure for a year, so that others might understand the effects of poverty on people s lives.
