"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).

Accommodating Australians : Commonwealth Government involvement in housing /

by Troy, Patrick N.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Federation Press 2012Description: xiii, 320 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: The book discusses the way in which Commonwealth initiative led to the States adopting town planning processes that due to State departure from historic approaches to the provision of urban infrastructure services has helped fuel a massive rise in dwelling prices. This book explores the response of the Australian Government during the bleakest years of WWII when it took stock of the situation facing the housing of the people and the way it developed a housing program in the post war period to improve the way they were accommodated. The ambitions of those who witnessed the extremes of housing deprivation during the Depression and resolved to improve the quality of housing, to make it more affordable and the nation fairer are outlined. It is a story about the rise and fall of public housing and helps explain why Australian housing has now become one of the most expensive in the developed world. It is also about the way Commonwealth initiatives built on the reforming agendas of critics within the States of the prevailing mode of and approach to urban development led to the introduction of town planning in Australia. It is also a sad tale about the way principle and mature consideration of the rational way to develop our cities gave way to pre-occupation with accommodating the short term wishes of developers. This history is an important aspect of Commonwealth-State relations over the last 70 years and explores the way interpretations of the Constitution have evolved to result in the Commonwealth gradually assuming greater authority over the States in the development and management of our accommodation (as in other areas). It in, large measure, documents the fragile and limited nature of the idea of the Federation and the few opportunities taken to see things as a nation rather than a loose coalition of States.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by McClintock, Paul | COAG Reform Council.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. COAG Reform Council 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 30 April 2012 PDF is of full report only Chairman: Paul McClintock. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: This is the third report assessing progress under COAG's National Affordable Housing Agreement. In this report, the council focuses on the outcomes in the Agreement that relate to home purchase affordability, rental affordability, and housing market efficiency and responsiveness. The council found that nationally, based on the indicators and years that can be reported on, there is no indication that housing affordability has improved. Rental affordability in particular - as measured by the proportion of low income households spending more than 30 per cent of their income on rent - has worsened in capital cities and for those on the lowest incomes.Availability: (1)

Affordable housing and regional growth /

by Howe, Brian | Jope, Sally.

Publisher: unpub. 2005Description: 18p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: By The Hon Brian Howe 2005 Dunstan Foundation Fellow and Sally Jope Brotherhood of St Laurence Draft. Not for public citationSummary: How well are housing markets in the non-metropolitan regions able to respond to demand? What impacts does this have on low to moderate income households? To what extent is the supply of low-cost housing considered when regional growth is being planned? These are some of the questions being explored by Mr Brian Howe, a 2005 Dunstan Fellow. The 2005 Dunstan Fellows Program aims to improve awareness amongst the general public and key decision makers of current and future problems relating to affordable housing, especially for families, and to identify and encourage implementation of key measures to address those problems. The program consists of four principal projects, each of which led by a Dunstan Fellow in consultation with the Convenor. The projects focus on aspects of the following topics: 1. A National Affordable Housing Agreement (Julian Disney) 2. Financing Public Housing (Prof Mike Berry) 3. Regional Growth and Affordable Housing (The Hon Brian Howe) 4. Work, Families and Affordable Housing (Assoc. Prof Barbara Pocock) The aim of this paper is to provide key information and stimulate discussion on regional growth and affordable housing. This paper includes secondary evidence from a review of the literature on housing and regional development and findings from roundtable discussions and interviews with people responsible for economic development and social housing services in non-metropolitan regions experiencing growth. The discussions were held in a regional centre, a small town and a rural community. A final discussion is to be held in a growth area in NSW within the Newcastle, Sydney and Wollongong region and will be included in the final report.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Ageing in what place? The experience of housing crisis and homelessness for older Victorians - Final report /

by Hanover Welfare Services.

Publisher: South Melbourne, Vic. Hanover 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 41-43 Appendices pp. 44-47Summary: Australia is facing significant demographic shifts over the next decade as the population grows and ages. Currently, services for the ageing population are fragmented with no single government department assuming responsibility for older Australians in all their diversity. ; Homelessness and housing services are reporting an increase in aged people presenting for assistance with no (recent) history of homelessness. Older Australians in private rental, or those entering private rental for the first time, appear to be particularly vulnerable. While the population is diverse, these people all have insecure tenure and limited income. ; In Australia there is no coherent response for older people in housing crisis or at risk of homelessness. In Victoria, the service response for the aged is focused on individuals with chronic health issues and homeless histories. Currently, the homelessness service sector doesn't provide a clearly differentiated response to those at risk of housing crisis or homelessness who are ageing.Availability: (1)
