Addressing social disadvantage through volunteering /

by Haski-Leventhal, Debbie | Centre for Social Impact.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Centre for Social Impact 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2009Summary: In this paper we review the current state of volunteering in Australia, particularly volunteering by socially disadvantaged groups. After presenting the advantages and challenges involved with volunteering, the relation of volunteering to socially disadvantaged groups is discussed: as the recipients of voluntary services and as providers. Two innovative concepts are presented to suggest how the Government can help to enhance both in a way that will facilitate social inclusion: volunteerability (the ability of individuals to volunteer) and recruitability (the ability of organisations to recruit volunteers). By presenting many examples from the Western World, various options by which the Government can enhance both are discussed.Availability: (1)

Breaking cycles, building futures : promoting inclusion of vulnerable families in antenatal and universal early childhood services : a report on the first three stages of the project. /

by Carbone, Stephen | Department of Human Services | Fraser, Alex | Ramburuth, Rasika | Nelms, Lucy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Department of Human Services 2004Description: x, 116 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Report on the first three stages of the projectSummary: The Breaking Cycles, Building Futures project is an initiative of the Victorian State Government and is funded by the Premier’s Drug Prevention Council. It is part of the State Government’s Best Start Strategy. The project’s key aim is to identify, implement and evaluate strategies to promote more inclusive antenatal and universal early childhood services, which better engage and assist vulnerable families. The Brotherhood of St Laurence was contracted by the Department of Human Services to undertake this project. In its mission of working for an Australia free of poverty, the Brotherhood of St Laurence acknowledges the importance of efforts to better support vulnerable children and their parents, not only as an important immediate measure, but also as a strategy to prevent poverty and social exclusion in the future. The Breaking Cycles, Building Futures project is being undertaken in four stages: • a literature review • consultation with parents, service providers and peak bodies • documenting possible strategies which Best Start partnerships can adopt to help them to provide more inclusive services • working with Best Start partnerships to implement and evaluate these strategies. This document reports on the results of the first three stages and outlines the process for addressing the final stage. The study started from the assumption that antenatal and universal early childhood services (Maternal and Child Health services, kindergartens and primary schools) are an important resource for promoting the wellbeing of our children and their families. As such, it is imperative these services are available to all. The study focused on answering four key questions: • What is an inclusive service? • How inclusive are existing antenatal and universal early childhood services? • What are the barriers to inclusion? • How can these services be more inclusive so that they better engage vulnerable families? Answers to these questions were sought through a review of the national and international literature, along with an extensive community consultation process. In all, 69 parents, more than 100 service providers and more than 20 Victorian Government staff were interviewed. The vast majority of parents interviewed were experiencing a range of (often concurrent) difficulties in their lives, such as low income, unemployment, homelessness, problematic substance use, mental illness or a disability. Many were young parents (less than 20 years of age) and several were from a non-English speaking background.
