A socially sustainable housing system (Investigative Panel) /

by Berry, Mike | Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute | Williams, Peter.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Investigative Panel on a socially sustainable housing system.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Project Number: 30637 URL contains: Final Report: No. 169: Investigative Panel on a socially sustainable housing system for AustraliaSummary: This project drew together a panel of experts from Australia and the UK to consider how a more socially sustainable housing system could be achieved in Australia. The panel observed that the current Australian housing system was poorly placed to deal with immediate and longer-term challenges. They noted that affordability was declining and housing supply was constrained. Meanwhile, the traditional public housing model and the private rental sector were failing to deliver adequate low-rent housing. The panel concluded that there are real constraints to creating a sustainable and desirable housing system due to current market failures and policy fragmentation. The current urban form remained problematic and further impacts from the global financial crisis (GFC) can be anticipated. There are also embedded inequalities in income and wealth which impact perversely upon housing outcomesAvailability: (1)

Age of opportunity : transforming the lives of older people in poverty /

by Centre for Social Justice. Older Age Working Group.

Publisher: London, U.K. Centre for Social Justice 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: A policy report by the Older Age Working Group Chaired by Sara McKee June 2011 Bibliography : pp. 149-153Summary: Life expectancy in Britain has increased dramatically over the last 80 years. This is an achievement that should be celebrated unequivocally as many older people have been able to realise the opportunities a longer life has afforded. Home ownership has reached unprecedented levels and civic participation is widespread. Yet there is another side of the coin. This review's interim report, The Forgotten Age, identified another group of older people in Britain for whom increased life expectancy has not yet afforded greater opportunities. With one in five pensioners living below the poverty line, we analysed the wide range of challenges facing older people in our most deprived communities: stubbornly high levels of social isolation, not helped by poor transport routes particularly in rural areas; the poor housing conditions in which many (and even many homeowners) live; the poor health from which many suffer; the lack of access to good, independent financial advice and a faltering social care system. We believe, however, that for this group later life does not have to be this way. We believe the challenges identified in The Forgotten Age are not insurmountable and that for these individuals later life can be the 'time of gifts' it is for so many others. Age of Opportunity focusses on reforms to bring about this change.Availability: (1)

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rowntree Foundation 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2010 Bibliography : p. 15-16Summary: Around a million older home-owners have at least 100,000 of housing equity, yet their incomes are so small that they qualify for means-tested benefits. If these people could draw on their housing equity easily and safely they could afford practical help which would improve their quality of life and make it possible for them to continue to live in their own home.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Condition report : low income earners in the Tasmanian private rental market /

by Anglicare Tasmania. Social Action and Research Centre.

Publisher: Hobart, Tas. Anglicare Tasmania 2002Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 65-67Summary: This report is based on research investigating how the private rental market in Tasmania is meeting the housing needs of low income earners. Tasmania, like all other Australian states, is experiencing a critical shortage in affordable housing. A range of Federal and State Government housing policies over the past decade have combined with a recent boom in the housing market, to dramatically reduce the affordable housing options of low income earners in Tasmania. Most low income households no longer have access to the public housing sector. Consequently low income earners are forced into the private rental market in which they face significant barriers and disadvantages.Availability: (1)
