by Australian Research Aliiance for Children and Youth.

Publisher: Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Involving Children and Young People in Research is a compendium of papers that seek to define and address those challenges within the broader context of changing attitudes toward the right of children and young people to play an active role in the decisions and actions that shape their lives. Involving children and young people in participatory research can be of great benefit to the young participants as well as to researchers. However that involvement also raises a number of ethical and access challenges. The compendium is one result of a symposium held in November 2008, co-hosted by ARACY and the NSW Commission for Children and Young People. The Think Tank brought together leaders in the field of participatory research to share their experience and identify what works and what doesn?t work in research that is with and by children ? as well as for and about them.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Life chances /

by Deacon, Kim | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Miller, Gregory.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Film Finance Corporation Ltd and Film Projects Pty Ltd 1995Description: 1 videocassette (VHS) (ca. 56 min.) : sd., col. with b&w sequences ; 1/2 in.Notes: Janet Taylor Distributed by Film Australia. Produced in association with The Brotherhood of St. Laurence. Produced with the assistance of NSW Film and TV Office. Family & early yearsSummary: LIFE CHANCES tells the stories of seven families from different cultures, educations and income levels and by focusing on a child in each family, it looks at discrepancies between the opportunities and choices offered to each of the children. ; The film is based on a longitudinal study by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, which follows 160 families with a child born in 1990 in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy. The study is recording changes in the family unit over years, creating a larger picture of the social movement of the families and children concerned. It compares issues of income, education, health and community services. ; The opportunity to make a documentary arose out of this extensive research and the seven families who took part reflect the different situations into which Australian children are being born in the 1990’s. ; The film features families from Vietnamese, Hmong, Turkish, Greek and Anglo-Celtic backgrounds. By sharing the intimacy and diversity of family life, the film explores issues of cultural identity and social change and its impact on the next generation. It contrasts the expectations of new arrivals with those of Australian born families. ; Children are dependent on the family to provide the structure in their lives, so the film looks at how the experience of the family shapes the children. Focussing on the 4 year-old child, the film asks how their life now will shape their life in the future. ; Jacinta, an educated single mother, dedicates her time and attention to her only child Isabel; while Fue, the son of Laotian refugees, competes with five other children under six for his mother’s attention. Lindy and Alan take holidays, Helen’s family is unable to afford even a family outing. Some families are ‘living on the edge’, unaware of services others take for granted. ; We see the widening gap between the employed and the unemployed. A Single income family is now likely to be living on the poverty line. We see government cuts reducing the services families depend on. The film highlights the issues affecting each family; poverty, access to education, language, work stress, and lack of family support. ; Fitzroy, the oldest suburb of Melbourne was until recently the home of many of Melbourne’s poor, but is rapidly changing through a process of gentrification. A suburb of contrasts, from Housing Commission tenants to double-income homeowners, Fitzroy links all the families and provides the framework within which the stories are set. Featuring sites where people’s paths cross in daily life, the film connects families different in their cultural and economic experiences through their common environment. ; To understand Australian society better we need to know more about what is shaping individual lives, which policies are successful and which are not. Social welfare, multiculturalism and education all play an important part. ; Looking at the different opportunities available to children from one inner city suburb, LIFE CHANCES reveals issues shaping the lives of Australians. While the cycle of poverty and the obstacles to change are revealed by the study, the film focuses on personal stories; parents expectations for their children, the support they provide and the support they are able to access being the main factors affecting children’s chances of achieving their full potential. ; LIFE CHANCES is an FFC/SBS Accord documentary screened on The Cutting Edge program in 1995.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (3).
