Home truths : impacts of housing insecurity on women across the life course /

by King, Sue | Anglicare Sydney | Bellamy, John | McDowell, Caitlin | Pope, Lesley | Evans, Susan | Moffitt, Alison.

Publisher: Parramatta, N.S.W. Anglicare Sydney 2011Description: PDF.Other title: State of Sydney report 2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 60-63Summary: Anglicare Sydney's annual State of Sydney report for 2011 finds that housing insecurity is making more women socially excluded, with women the highest users of homelessness services. Home Truths looks at the experience of single young mothers, single women over 50 and older women caring for a son or daughter with a disability. This report is unique because it looks at the issue of housing across generations of women and socio-economic groups; secure housing is not just about poverty, but choice and opportunity. Older parent carers are overcome with stress about future care options for their son or daughter, while young mothers and single older women are finding it harder to get stable, safe housing.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

It could be you : female, single, older and homeless /

by McFerran, Ludo | Homelessness NSW.

Publisher: Strawberry Hills, N.S.W. Homelessness NSW 2010; Older Women's Network (Australia) 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2010Summary: This report documents a collaborative project which sought to interrogate the experience of older women and the reflection of that experience in policy. The project sought an inclusive homelessness definition, and to build a more robust knowledge base through which to inform policy and service delivery to this group. The study was prompted by evidence of increasing numbers of older women entering for the first time the homeless population, and the concern of the homeless service system that demand could not be met. To put the experience of these older women into context the study examined the evidence of the combined impact of housing trends affected by changing demographics, the impact of ageing, and entrenched financial disadvantage on women. Combined with the qualitative evidence from the thirty one homeless older women, the study concluded that being female, older, and single is to be at housing risk.Availability: (1)

Live longer, work longer. /

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006Description: 146 p.Online Access: OECD iLibrary (Read only) Notes: At head of title: Ageing and employment policies Includes bibliographical references (p. 143-146)Summary: This international report draws out the main lessons from reviews in 21 countries of policies to improve employment prospects for older workers. ; The writers argue that to encourage people to work longer, there must be strong financial incentives—and subsidies for early retirement (and obstacles to part-time work) need to be eliminated. Wage-setting and employment practices will need to be altered to foster hiring and retaining of older workers; and older workers will need help to improve their employability. Overall, a major shift in attitudes of both employers and employees will be required. ; This analysis of policy trends, though not focusing on the impact on low-income groups, provides useful context for the BSL’s work on retirement and ageing.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
