Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Department 2008Description: 98 p.: ill.Other title: The Green Paper on Homelessness.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2008 Alternative title: The Green Paper on Homelessness Tony Nicholson, Chair of the Homelessness Steering Committee 2008 -Summary: "The Australian Government released its Green Paper on Homelessness on 22 May 2008 to promote discussion and draw out bold ideas and strategies to reduce homelessness. On any given night 100,000 Australians are homeless. Half are under 24 years old. 10,000 are children. After 17 years of economic growth this is unacceptable. To reduce homelessness we need a new approach that focuses more strongly on early intervention and prevention. We must provide people with access to stable and affordable housing and make sure that crisis services, hospitals, schools, employers and business work better together. Reducing homelessness is everyone's responsibility. ; The Green Paper is a major piece of work that takes into consideration the ideas and views of the community as to how Australia should address homelessness over the next decade." -- FaCSIA websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Women, domestic and family violence and homelessness : a synthesis report. /

by Tually, Selina | Faulkner, Debbie | Cutler, Cecile | Slatter, Michele | Flinders Institute for Housing, Urban and Regional Research.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Bibliography: p. 66-76 Prepared for the Office for Women Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs Family & early years Into & out of workSummary: "Domestic and family violence related homelessness is a widespread and growing problem in Australia. However, establishing the true extent of domestic and family violence is difficult. There is no typical woman who becomes homeless because of domestic and family violence. Such violence can and does affect women of all ages, cultural, social and economic backgrounds, and women living in all sorts of relationships. The election of the Rudd Government and its commitment to the development of a ten year plan to address homelessness in Australia provides promise that women and children affected by domestic and family violence, and the threat and reality of homelessness, will be given greater prominence in the public policy arena. > This report investigates the support and accommodation needs of women (and children) affected by domestic and family violence. It finds that there is no one solution to domestic and family violence related homelessness. There is also no easy to roll out solution. This is because there is no one pathway into homelessness for all women affected by domestic and family violence and many women cycle in and out of homelessness and crisis accommodation." -- Office for Women websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Youth, homelessness, and embodiment : moralised aesthetics and affective suffering /

by Farrugia, David | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 9Summary: This paper explores the process of embodiment for young people experiencing homelessness. Drawing on interviews with 20 young people, descriptions of embodied feelings and practices are related to the moral and aesthetic regulatory norms which construct bodies in contemporary modern societies. Young people experiencing homelessness are excluded from the private sphere, meaning they are unable to practice the reflexive body practices required of modern subjects. These young people also lack access to consumer goods, meaning they are unable to construct the forms of aesthetic embodiment expected of young people in a consumer society. The outcome of these exclusions is a form of embodied suffering.Availability: (1)
