Getting it together : an inquiry into the sharing of government and community facilities : final report September 2009 /

by Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Competition & Efficiency Commission 2009Description: lvi, 269 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2009 Bibliography : p. 259-269Summary: Overall, the Commission considers that in many areas gains can be achieved from increasing the sharing of government and community facilities in Victoria, building in particular on the experience of those involved in sharing in the past, including in schools. Some modest increased participation by the private sector could be part of this. Shared facilities generally bring benefits; including improving service delivery and expanding the scope of services (especially in interactions between service providers), encouraging social connectedness within communities, facilitating access to and participation in activities (particularly among disadvantaged groups), improving efficiency (for example in maintenance costs) and better use of assets, including land. The mix of benefits varies across the range of shared facilities.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Ethnic difference and community relationships are under greater scrutiny following the 2001 disturbances in the North of England and the war on terror . A high-profi le policy response has been the promotion of social cohesion. The study takes a critical look at the meaning of social cohesion for new and established residents in Moss Side in Manchester and North Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey. It describes patterns of neighbourhood diversity and residents accounts of social interaction, within their own ethnic groups and across others. The report considers whether ethnic difference is a source of neighbourhood tensions, and the meaning of community and belonging. It draws on resident and service provider accounts to show the factors that hinder or promote social cohesion and gives recommendations for policy and practice." -- Publisher website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
