Making it work : promoting participation of job seekers with multiple barriers through the Personal Support Programme

by Perkins, Daniel.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2007Description: 142 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy | Summary Notes: December 2007 Summary: This report presents findings of an evaluation of the Personal Support Programme (PSP) by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Melbourne Citymission and Hanover Welfare Services. PSP, funded by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations and delivered by non-government and private contractors, provides two years intensive case management to job seekers facing multiple personal barriers. The research found that after involvement in the program participants had somewhat higher levels of economic and social participation and less interference from barriers. Many elements of the PSP model are consistent with best practice overseas, but two serious weaknesses are the lack of integrated employment support and the severely limited funding restricting access to specialist services for participants.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2), BSL Archives (2).

Sustainable outcomes for disadvantaged job seekers : submission to the Australian Government on the future of employment assistance. / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Horn, Michael.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: 33 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission on the future of employment assistance .Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence has a long history of service delivery relevant to employment assistance as a not-for-profit provider, both prior and subsequent to the reforms implemented by the former Howard Government. Parallel to our progressive approach to assistance that maximises social and economic participation, the Brotherhood has a substantial record in research and policy analysis to ensure a more effective and responsive employment assistance system for disadvantaged job seekers. Our experience from direct service delivery, our recent innovations and our research show that the current employment assistance system is failing disadvantaged and marginalised Australians who seek a better life. Australia’s strong economy has absorbed those unemployed who require only minimal help to become work ready and obtain jobs. Yet we still have over one million unemployed and underemployed people, with an underutilisation rate of about 11 per cent and substantially higher levels in regional and local areas. Australia has had a very poor record in investment in people and communities over the past decade as evident from OECD data across education, skills building and active labour market programs. Too many Australians of all ages lack the education and skills to take up many of the current and future job opportunities. As our population ages, it will be imperative that we invest more in human capital to ensure a fully engaged and productive workforce. The Brotherhood welcomes the new Government’s commitment to prioritise social inclusion and skills development. We believe this offers a vital opportunity to complement much needed reform of mainstream employment assistance with targeted approaches to resolve structural barriers to employment and support job opportunities through infrastructure and capacity building at regional or neighbourhood levels. Our experience shows that the human capital development approach will not, by itself, engage disadvantaged communities and individuals. A closer alignment of employment assistance and skills building with community strengthening and neighbourhood renewal strategies is required. We suggest that the federal government collaborates with states and territories to develop regional Employment Boards in areas facing significant disadvantage as an integral component of a Social Inclusion Framework. These boards would include government, business and community sector representatives to collaborate on agreed local priorities. The resources currently spent on the Area Consultative Committees could be redirected to this approach. The Brotherhood believes that access to meaningful work can be a life-changing experience for disadvantaged people, improving their well-being, opening up personal choices and creating opportunities for their families and children through better health and education outcomes. We urge redirection of resources through service system reform to bring Australia’s commitments up to international best practice. Investment to maximise social and economic participation will pay long-term dividends by way of a more inclusive and productive society. We suggest that substantial savings, achievable through simplification and reconfiguration, may be diverted to implement the fundamental reforms needed to refocus and energise employment assistance in Australia for the next decade.
