Deaths rates for infants and children have declined since 1986, rates of risky drinking and smoking among children aged 12-14 are down, and most children achieve above the minimum standards for reading and numeracy.

A safe and supportive family environment for children : key components and links to child outcomes /

by Mullan, Killian | Australia. Department of Social Services | Higgins, Daryl.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of Social Services 2014Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Bibliography : p. 72-77Summary: While most children live in safe and supportive environments, governments are aware that too many children are becoming known to child protection services. This has led to a shift in thinking away from solely concentrating on responding to 'risk of harm' reports towards a broader public health approach to protecting all of Australia's children, reducing the likelihood of children coming to the attention of statutory authorities. This report aims to understand more about the prevalence of different types of family environments in society and to explore the influence of these environments on different child outcomes. Using data from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children, we used latent class cluster analysis to identify different family environments and analysed the associations between these environments and particular child outcomes.Availability: (1)

All our children: children's entitlements to health, education and community services /

by Harris, Patricia | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1990Description: 61 p. Bibliography: p. 55-61.Other title: Child poverty policy review ; 4.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The children of Australia are divided by the distribution of Income and "wealth, by deep-seated and enduring cultural differences, by geographical distance and regional inequalities. Such differences have produced entrenched inequalities and led to the abrogation of many children's rights to good quality health, education and community services. The factors that divide children are exacerbated by the practices and institutions of government: federalism and its tensions, problems of co-ordination, centralised bureaucracies said to be distant from the people they are supposed to serve, and the lack of representation of the most economically, socially and culturally "oppressed groups. This paper analyses these divisions and identifies the general policies that are needed if all children's rights to good qualify health, education and community services are to be met. In essence, the paper argues for a consolidation and expansion of the services for children provided by government. It shows how 'the public provision of universally available health, education and community services is' necessary to ensure that all children share in the same spectrum of opportunities and that the consequences of economic and geographic inequality are counteracted Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
