Commissioners: Jan Carter* and Wally DethlefsSummary: n 1987, after consulting with a wide range of individuals and organisations attempting to assist homeless children, analysing current policy directions and surveying the available literature, the Commission decided that there was a clear need for a national inquiry into homelessness as it affects children and young people. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights provides that children are to be accorded such measures of protection as are required by their status as minors) The Declaration of the Rights of the Child provides, more specifically, that all children have a right to enjoy special protection, to receive adequate housing, and to be protected against all forms of neglect, cruelty and exploitation.' It was clear to the Commission that a large number of Australian children were being denied these fundamental human rights.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Protection to prevention : child welfare policies

by Carter, Jan | University of New South Wales. Social Welfare Research Centre.

Publisher: Kensington, N.S.W. Social Welfare Research Centre 1983Description: 76 p. PDF.Other title: SWRC Reports and proceedings no. 29.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: January 1983Summary: This study was undertaken to examine child welfare policies in terms of their relative emphases on protective or preventive measures, and it set out to determine whether, in general, protective policies enhance or reduce the impact of preventive policies or vice versa. There are great contradictions implicit in governments attempting simultaneously to pursue protective and preventive policies. Protection is used, in this report, to mean the rescue or supervision of a child from adverse family circumstances by compulsory government intervention, while prevention is used to refer to the summoning of an appropriate range of services on a non-compulsory basis, to reinforce and enhance the caring capacity of the family for the child.Availability: (1)

Reconnections and recollections : charting the history of Connections UnitingCare /

by Wales, Sue (ed.) | Connections UnitingCare.

Publisher: Mount Waverley, Vic. Connections UnitingCare 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 Bibliography : pp. 52-53Summary: In the 1970s, in the newer areas of population growth in the south-eastern suburbs, people of faith responded again to the needs of families with young children and teenagers by establishing relevant programs through Grassmere Youth Services and the Wheelers Hill Family Centre. Over the ensuing years, these programs expanded rapidly as more needs and ways of addressing these were identified. This booklet briefly explores the background and work of each of these agencies before they united to become a new organisation in May 2000. The reflections of some of the key figures in Connections' history and other staff directly involved also add a more personal element to the organisational changes. Innovation and initiative has driven this work over the years, and this approach is integral to Connections' current programs, some of whose achievements are outlined in this publication.Availability: (1)
