A question of begging : a study of the extent and nature of begging in the City of Melbourne. /

by Horn, Michael | Hanover Welfare Services | Cooke, Michelle.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Hanover Welfare Services 2001Description: 27 p. + appendices.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Includes bibliographical references June 2001Summary: Anyone who has visited US cities, such as Washington or Los Angeles, would be shocked at the level of begging evident in the city streets. At the start of the 21st century, it is a striking paradox to see such high levels of poverty within a country often considered an exemplar of the success of post-industrial capitalist economies. Over recent years, the contrast between affluence and poverty on the streets of Melbourne’s CBD has become a matter of public concern and comment.

Avoid the harm : stay calm : report on the inquiry into the impact of violence on young Australians /

by Australia. Parliament. House of Representatives. Standing ommittee on Family,Community, Housing and Youth.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth of Australia 2010Description: xvi, 180 p.: ill.Other title: Avoid the harm : stay calm.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: While acknowledging that the survey is not statistically rigorous in terms of population sampling, on the basis of responses received it would appear that youth violence is an issue that concerns most young people. The majority of respondents have witnessed violence and believe that both the incidence and severity of physical violence is increasing. They mainly believe that it occurs between males, although a sizable proportion perceived that females were potentially involved, primarily as victims. Youth violence appears to be occurring across Australia in capital cities, regional centres and through to remote locations. Much of the violence is street or pub/club violence although school or workplace violence is also common. The respondents believe that alcohol and drugs and lack of respect for other people are the main reasons for violence. They believe that education programs are a way to minimise violent behaviour, but support for more police and harsher penalties for perpetrators also featured strongly. Limiting access to alcohol was also raised, but more in the context of the responsible serving of alcohol rather than increasing the legal age of drinking.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies. National Child Protection Clearinghouse 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Institute of Family Studies. National Child.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 21-23Summary: In this paper, we look at the specific issues facing those responsible for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children in the context of parental separation, and the two separate legal systems: family law and child protection. There is a range of ways in which state-based child protection systems intersect with the federal family law system, with some gaps and some areas of overlap. Recent research as well as reports from national inquiries highlights the lack of clarity regarding responsibilities and how families and professionals navigate within and between the systems.Availability: (1)

Just another manic Monday : the challenge of working with clients with alcohol and other drug issues in community service organisations /

by Hinton, Teresa | Anglicare Tasmania. Social Action and Research Centre.

Publisher: Hobart, Tas. Anglicare Tasmania 2008Description: 82 p. ; 30 cm.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography: p. 76-78Summary: Problematic alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use is associated with a range of indicators of social exclusion including homelessness, unemployment, under-achievement at school, crime, family breakdown, financial problems and mental health problems. This means that community service organisations (CSOs) operating a range of programs to respond to these needs inevitably encounter ATOD issues among their clients. This research quantifies the extent to which workers in Tasmanian CSOs, outside the specialist ATOD sector, work with clients who have substance use issues. By profiling the work of one CSO, Anglicare Tasmania, it explores the nature of that work, the views of clients and how the response to these issues can be made more effective.(Executive summary - Extract)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
