"Opinion" /

by Nicholson, Tony.

Publisher: 2006Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Tony Nicholson outlines the purpose of the Supported Accomodation Assistance Program (SAAP) legislation that was introduced in Spring 1994. He argues that more than a decade on, the vision for SAAP remains unfulfilled and seemingly largely forgotten by governments and service providers. A more integrated approach between employment, housing assistance and personal support services is required for the SAAP legislation to be effective in dealing with homeless jobseekers. Such an integration of services should have an emphasis on employment.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

by Australia. Department of Families, Housing Community ervices and Indigenous Affairs. Homelessness Working Group.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Families, Housing Community Services and Indigenous Affairs 2010Description: DPF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: This document has been prepared by the Homelessness Working Group on behalf of the Housing Ministers' Conference for discussion purposes. Housing Ministers' Conference February 2010Summary: This discussion paper is part of consultations to develop a national quality framework (NQF) that will maximise the outcomes and life opportunities for those experiencing or at risk of homelessness. A national quality framework (NQF) aims to deliver ongoing improvement and better integration of services delivered by specialist homelessness and allied and mainstream organisations. Some 105,000 Australians experience homelessness on any given day. Many others are at risk of becoming homeless. People who are homeless or at risk are one of the most vulnerable and marginalised groups in our community. All governments are committed to improving outcomes for people who are homeless and reducing the overall number of homeless people. A national quality framework will provide a platform for services to deliver an improved and more integrated service response to clients with greater national consistency. This will assist people who are homeless to get the help and support they need when they need it whichwill improve their long term outcomes.Availability: (1)

A predictable crisis: older, single women as the new face of homelessness /

by Sharam, Andrea.

Publisher: Hawthorn, Vic. Institute for Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology June 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The dissolution of partnerships and re-partnering involve serious risks for women and their children, according to this paper. This significant gender-based economic and social problem has emerged on the back of demographic change. A recent national study of women and housing used ABS demographic modelling to show that a sizeable proportion of female baby boomers are single, poor and facing significant housing insecurity, which suggests that the new face of homelessness will be single older women by virtue of a combination of the sheer number of women in the cohort, their poorer economic status and social changes that occurred in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. This forecast appears as a startling departure from the existing statistics. More women than men use the homelessness service system, but this reflects the response to family violence which is aimed at women. ; Single women (as a group distinct from those seeking assistance because of violence) receive only about 4% of the national funding for homelessness. Single women are currently but minor players in the homelessness statistics, which can be explained by the historical size of this cohort, but this could shift from a trickle to a roar in the space of generation".Availability: (1)
