She argues that two enduring features of the Brotherhood s approach have been the recognition of the structural dimension of poverty and the related need to address poverty by preventive social action rather than only by remedial attention; but she also notes variations over the years, for example in the emphasis on individual agency and empowerment.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

How the Family Centre Project changed the image of poverty in Victoria. /

by Benn, Concetta [Connie] | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: 10 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: From: Wednesday Lunchtime Seminars, 29 September 2004.Summary: The work of the Brotherhood of St Laurence has affected the prevailing image of poverty in Victoria since Father Tucker (the founder of BSL began his anti-slum campaign in 1935. Thirty years later, in the sixties, BSL was one of the few major agencies providing services for the poor people of Victoria. During this thirty years Father Tucker, Bishop- Sambell and David Scott through their social action and public relations efforts ensured that BSL actions and initiatives were noticed by other social reformers and by all levels of government. The high reputation and skills of BSL social workers and youth workers over the years also ensured that their methods of practice were recorded and copied by educational institutions and other agencies. By the mid-sixties services to poor families were delivered through the Social Work Service and the Youth and Children's Centre, where six social workers and eight youth workers were employed. The Social Work Service had an open door policy which resulted in an annual caseload of approximately 600 families, most of whom came for financial assistance. The Youth and Children's Centre activities were open and over 300 young people were known to the service.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
