Response to the Productivity Commission draft report : caring for older adults /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2011Summary: Successful adaptation requires new ways of thinking about the social contribution of older adults, the relationship between generations and the balance of risk between the individual and the state. The Productivity Commission's draft report, Caring for older Australians (January 2011), outlines key elements in a national response to this increasingly pressing policy issue. Decisions made on the basis of this report will shape the quality of life of some of Australia's most vulnerable citizens. It has the potential to become a key point of reference available to policy-makers who are looking for answers. The Brotherhood of St Laurence made a detailed submission to the original call (BSL 2010), and this second response addresses certain key aspects of the draft report itself. While the aims of the draft report, identified as part of 'A framework for assessing aged care' are for the most part laudable, there appears to be a mismatch between these and the mechanisms identified to effect such change. Most notable is the assumption that a for-profit system will be the best way to achieve these ends. Unfortunately, no evidence is supplied to support this. Indeed there is international evidence that systems relying heavily on the market can reduce choice and increase social inequality among older citizens, especially those who are most vulnerable and have complex needs. The danger here is that, by attempting to create a system that facilitates for-profit provision, the Commission tilts the playing field unfairly against other forms, most notably the not-for-profit sector. Not-for-profits are also the providers most likely to work with the poorest, most disadvantaged older Australians who also have the most complex combination of needs.Availability: (1)

Sambell : man of the word. /

by Challen, Michael B.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Melbourne University Publishing 2008Description: xvi, 245 p.: ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references, p. 227-230, and index. 2 copiesSummary: Geoffrey Tremayne Sambell, Archbishop of Perth from 1969-1980, was a man of vast vision, undoubted convictions and determination who gained international repute throughout the Anglican Communion. He began his ministry in the inner suburbs of Melbourne, professionalising penal and hospital chaplaincies, advancing the Church's commitment to social welfare and justice as director of the Brotherhood of St. Laurence, and marshalling resources for the Church to move into the new suburbs. He worked incessantly to transform the loose federation of 27 Anglican dioceses into a 'national Church' and to deepen its relationships with Asia. His lifelong understanding that every 'cell' of the Church was to be mutually responsible, locally and globally, led to his appointment as a foundation member of the Anglican Consultative Council, reporting directly to the Archbishop of Canterbury. He actively related his work to the world and its political realities, through personal relationships and advocacy organisations such as the Victorian and Australian Councils of Social Services. The Australian Government appointed him foundation chair of its National Consultative Council of Social Welfare. Throughout all these ministries, Sambell lived life to the full, characteristically a man of few words but unreservedly a man of the Word -- Book jacket.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Sen and Bourdieu : understanding inequality /

by Bowman, Dina | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2010Description: 16 p.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 14.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 Bibliography : p. 14-16Summary: Amartya Sen's capabilities approach has become increasingly popular in Australian social and economic policy making circles. While it has much to offer, it emphasises normative understandings of freedom or capability and overlooks the role of culture in shaping the choices that men and women make and perceive as possible or reasonable. In this paper, I draw on my experience of a joint longitudinal study that examines the employment, retention and advancement of low-paid workers in Australia. A key element of this work is an examination of motivations and aspirations. I reflect on my use of Pierre Bourdieu's concepts in analysing how the men and women in the study make sense of and respond to their circumstances as they move in and out of low-paid work. I argue that while a capabilities approach is useful in evaluating inequality, Bourdieu's concepts of field, forms of capital and habitus, especially as they have been developed by feminists, enable a deeper understanding of the processes and experience of inequality.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
