Submission to the Commonwealth Advisory Committee on Homelessness. Response to National Homeless Strategy Consultation Paper

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2001Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2001Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence is a major Victorian-based welfare organisation with a focus on the prevention and alleviation of material poverty, the consequent hardship and lack of opportunity and the improvement of the quality of lives of people on low incomes generally. Inspired by its Christian foundation and its commitment to social justice, the Brotherhood of St Laurence is working for an Australia free of poverty. The Brotherhood of St Laurence has an interest in the supply of affordable, secure, well-located and appropriate housing for a number of reasons. Firstly, access to housing is fundamental to the organisation’s vision of an Australia free of poverty. Secondly, the Brotherhood is a provider of residential and community based aged care and independent living units for low-income elderly and a provider of state based Public Housing Advocacy Program (previously the Rental Housing Support Program). Thirdly, the current lack of affordable housing puts pressure on all other Brotherhood services including our employment services, in particular Community Support Program and Job Placements Education and Training (JPET); our community services; and the settlement services provided by the Ecumenical Migration Centre.

Previously he worked as the Chief Executive Officer at Hanover Welfare Service (now Launch Housing).Summary: Barnett’s conversion to the cause of social reform was a highly personal and emotional response to the experience of the slum. In the illuminating interview with Bill Russell from which I draw this account, Barnett is explicit about the ways in which the spectacle of the slum child awakened feelings that went back to his own childhood as the son of an unemployed Brunswick quarryman in the 1890s depression.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The politics of homelessness in the Australian print media /

by Zufferey, Carole | 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. 10-11Summary: The media plays an important role in politicising social problems such as homelessness. This paper argues that political debates and media representations of homelessness frame options available to policy makers and social work practitioners and shape policy and practice responses to homelessness. Positive and compassionate representations of homelessness can influence the development of respectful and inclusive policy and practice approaches to homelessness. However, dominant representations of homelessness in the print media that individualise social problems also reinforce deep-seated community values that maintain unequal power and gender relations and transcend political changes in society.Availability: (1)

The spatial dynamics of homelessness in Australia 2001-2011

by Batterham, Deb | Wood, Gavin | Mallett, Shelley.

Publisher: Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute Melbourne, Australia 2014Description: Electronic.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Australia has a rich bank of qualitative research that describes the circumstances, personal characteristics, and practices of people who experience homelessness. More recently research has investigated the pathways into and out of homelessness. However, to date there has been little investigation of the structural drivers of homelessness and minimal use of quantitative evidence to inform an understanding of the role that housing and labour market conditions play in shaping whether people are more or less vulnerable to homelessness. This project aims to fill this knowledge gap. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

What makes case management work for people experiencing homelessness ? : Evidence for practice. /

by Gronda, Hellene.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2009Description: ii, 151 p.: ill., tables, charts.Notes: This project was initiated by a partnership between Hanover Welfare Services, the Brotherhood of St Laurence, the St Vincent de Paul Society, the Council to Homeless Persons Victoria, and the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) Ltd. Summary: "Case management has been central to homelessness assistance practice in Australia since at least the early 1990s, when it was adopted as a key strategy to enhance the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP). The approach was formally documented in 1997 with the release of the SAAP Case Management Resource Kit. This research synthesis project was initiated with the intention to provide a rigorous and independent evidence base for informing practice and policy, in particular the negotiation of the next SAAP program agreement. > The research synthesis aims to provide an evidence-based understanding of how case management works to contribute to the development of more effective responses to the needs of people experiencing homelessness. This report defines case management and synthesises the international scientific evidence on case management practice for the homelessness sector." -- AbstractAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
