Making it work : promoting participation of job seekers with multiple barriers through the Personal Support Programme

by Perkins, Daniel.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2007Description: 142 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy | Summary Notes: December 2007 Summary: This report presents findings of an evaluation of the Personal Support Programme (PSP) by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Melbourne Citymission and Hanover Welfare Services. PSP, funded by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations and delivered by non-government and private contractors, provides two years intensive case management to job seekers facing multiple personal barriers. The research found that after involvement in the program participants had somewhat higher levels of economic and social participation and less interference from barriers. Many elements of the PSP model are consistent with best practice overseas, but two serious weaknesses are the lack of integrated employment support and the severely limited funding restricting access to specialist services for participants.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2), BSL Archives (2).

Mutual obligation : ethical and social implications.

by Kinnear, Pamela | Australia Institute.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia Institute 2000Description: v, 46 p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: August 2000 open access 19/06/2019; Reference to the Brotherhood of St Laurence research : "Other research by the Brotherhood of St Laurence has shown similar results, with over 80 per cent of the 400 respondents concerned at the growing disparity between the ‘haves and have-nots’ in Australian society (Brotherhood of St Laurence 2000)" p. 15 Summary: This paper is a philosophical investigation of the mutual obligation principle and its application to current welfare policy. It finds that the ethical foundations of the Howard Government’s Mutual Obligation policies do not stand up to scrutiny, and that the way the idea of mutual obligation is currently being used in public debate misrepresents the philosophical traditions of which it claims to be a part. It also finds that the broad appeal of the mutual obligation principle is based on a number of popular misconceptions about the nature of unemployment in Australia.Availability: (1)
