A question of begging : a study of the extent and nature of begging in the City of Melbourne. /

by Horn, Michael | Hanover Welfare Services | Cooke, Michelle.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Hanover Welfare Services 2001Description: 27 p. + appendices.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Includes bibliographical references June 2001Summary: Anyone who has visited US cities, such as Washington or Los Angeles, would be shocked at the level of begging evident in the city streets. At the start of the 21st century, it is a striking paradox to see such high levels of poverty within a country often considered an exemplar of the success of post-industrial capitalist economies. Over recent years, the contrast between affluence and poverty on the streets of Melbourne’s CBD has become a matter of public concern and comment.

Melbourne : a social atlas, 2006 /

by Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Bureau of Statistics 2008Description: HTML.Notes: 1996 ; 2001 ; 2006Summary: "The Social Atlas series consists of a separate publication for each state and territory that presents colour maps that highlight key characteristics of the population in each capital city and selected regional areas. The maps depict social, economic and housing characteristics based on data collected in the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. This information shows the diversity that exists across Australia's cities and regional centres. The maps are easy to interpret as the distribution of the data are represented by different colours and shading. Brief commentary explaining the main features and characteristics also accompany each map. To provide some consistency between atlases, each publication includes a common set of maps for the capital city areas covering topics such as population, cultural diversity, education, labour force, income, families, households and dwellings. Also, each Social Atlas includes additional maps that highlight any unique attributes pertaining to the particular capital city. A smaller selection of maps are included for the selected regional centres and these vary from Atlas to Atlas." -- Publisher website.Availability: No items available

Submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne : Outer Suburban / Interface Services and Development Committee (OSISDC) / Sonia Martin (BSL)

by Martin, Sonia | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: 22 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission to Inquiry into Liveability Options in Outer Suburban Melbourne.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: This submission was written by Sonia Martin, with contributions from George Myconos, Sharon Bond, Victoria Johnson, Nadine Cameron, Helen Kimberley, Iris Levin, Sally James and Paul Smyth, and edited by Deborah Patterson. Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence recognises the critical intersections between housing, employment, education, health, welfare, and access to services and facilities. We also recognise the complex challenges the state government faces in addressing the interconnected issues of population growth and housing affordability. The Brotherhood maintains that planned social infrastructure is the foundation of economically and socially inclusive development and is not a residual, post hoc response to economic and social system failures. Critical to this endeavour is a social investment plan that recognises appropriate urban change as an entitlement of citizens across the life course and ensures that all have what they need to lead flourishing lives. Supportive governance structures are essential. We support a model of collaborative governance across all tiers of government that allows for meaningful determination at the local level and builds capacity to work together. We have focused this response to the Terms of Reference on population, private housing, and health and services delivery issues and have limited our comments on infrastructure issues. Due to the limited local data on median house prices and population growth in outer urban areas specifically, we have not addressed Term of Reference 3 separately, but have included some data in other sections of our submission.Availability: (1)

The Outcasts of Melbourne : essays in social history. /

by Davison, Graeme (ed.) | Dunstan, David | McConville, Chris.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Allen and Unwin 1985Description: 228 p.Summary: Behind the glittering image of 'Marvellous Melbourne' there existed in the popular imagination another, very different, picture of the colonial metropolis. This was the city of 'low life' of crowded slums, poverty, disease and vice. The nine essays in The Outcasts of Melbourne attempt to reveal the social realities behind this picture. They include new accounts of the forces which created the city's physical environment. They show how perceptions of a city can be shaped by campaigning journalists, artists and writers. They present collective portraits of the poor and the 'criminal classes' - and of those who set out to save them. They describe how the city's guardians - the police, public health authorities and charity workers - responded to the challenge of the slums. By imaginative use of the rich deposits in the public records, these explorations in social history present new ways of documenting the lives of people whose daily activities were seldom reported in the popular press. In doing so, they also map the chains of causation which link the actions of individuals - appearing before a committee of a benevolent society, getting arrested, evangelising at a Salvation Army rally - to the social forces which have shaped the cities in which we live.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
