You can't get all the answers out of a book : a review of the Action and Resource Co-operative [ARC] Ltd., July 1984 to June 1987. /

by Backman, Helen | Action and Resource Co-operative Ltd | Greenwood, Janet.

Publisher: [Clifton Hill, Vic.] [Action and Resource Co-operative Ltd.] 1988Description: 121 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Review produced by a group of contributors including Helen Backman (transcription and editorial) and Janet Greenwood (editorial) ARC started in 1972 at the Brotherhood of St Laurence as The Family Centre Project. Action and Resource Centre (ARC) for low-income families opened in 1972 on a self-management basis, taking over from the Family Centre and continuing the Family Centre Project philosophy - 'low-income people need a voice and an organisation where they can help other low income people'. With 95 member families, fifteen members of the Family Centre were employed as resource workers. The ARC's Support Work Program (SWOP) provided employment for men who had been out of work for some time. The formal agreement between the BSL and the Action & Resource Centre was signed on 28 July 1976, the first step towards autonomy for the project.(BSL timeline)Summary: The Action and Resource Centre (ARC) is a Co-operative based organisation run by and for low-income families and individuals.ARC provides services and information and an environment in which its members can learn skills and make decisions, and it encourages and supports low-income people to voice their views about the issues which effect them and their families. ARC's basic goal is to give low-income people power over information, resources, relationships and decision making to assist them in overcoming their traditional powerlessness in the community. As a Co-operative, ARC is bound by the rules of the Co-operation Act of 1981. However, over the years of its development, ARC has adopted objectives which are appropriate to its role as a centre for low-income people. The focus of this report is the three years between July 1984 and June 1987. The report is a review of ARC's performance during its last three year funding period. In conjunction with the report on ARC's future directions (the next three years), this report will be used for funding negotiations with the BSL. The report is based on taped interviews.
