Submission to the Victorian Government consultation Pathways to a Fair and Sustainable Social Housing System /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2012Summary: The Victorian Government's discussion paper on social housing provides an opportunity for difficult conversations that are necessary if we are to gain the Victorian community's support for the long-term solutions that are required. The Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the Government's public consultation on two discussion papers, Pathways to a fair and sustainable social housing system and Social Housing: a discussion paper, on the options to improve the supply of quality housing. Many challenges exist in providing appropriate housing assistance for disadvantaged people, but to this point there has been little rigorous analysis or robust debate with a long-term solution in mind. We also note that much of the discussion in Pathways to a fair and sustainable social housing system is about circumstances that have been known for many years - long waiting lists, increased use by recipients of government income support, declining rental revenue, old stock, a maintenance backlog and a mismatch between housing stock and the profile of people needing social housing assistance. The development of a new housing framework is an excellent opportunity for analysis and debate about solutions to these long-term problems, with a view to ensuring all Victorians are able to live in secure, affordable housing as one of the crucial underpinnings of social and economic participation in the mainstream life of the community.Availability: (1)

Towards best practice for public housing asset management /

by Kenley, Russell | Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute | Chiazor, Maxwell | Heywood, Christopher | McNelis, Sean.

Publisher: Melbourne, Victoria Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute[ AHURI]..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2009 Bibliography : p. 46-54Summary: This report presents the preliminary literature findings and outlines the research remaining to be completed in the project. One of the main issues which has arisen from the work is to challenge the conservative view of asset management practices in social housing, not because the traditional views are incorrect, but rather because a narrow view of asset management may result in a self-confirming study existing practices will be confirmed. The research team has found it necessary to be more aggressive in pursuit of a wider gamut of practices and has explored heavily the practices they have identified in the corporate sectorAvailability: (1)

Urban regeneration, scale and balancing social mix /

by Arthurson, Kathy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. The Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008; Research & Policy Centre 2008Description: PDF.Other title: Social Inclusion and Place Based The Brotherhood of St.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 13 June 2008 The social inclusion and place based disadvantage workshop was held on the 13th of June 2008 at the Metropole Conference Centre in Fitzroy, Victoria, under the auspices of the Brotherhood of St Laurence?s Research & Policy Centre and the Victorian Government?s Department of Planning & Community Development. It was hosted by Paul Smyth, facilitated by Allison McClelland, and coordinated by Kristine Philipp. These proceedings are aimed at fostering, informing and stimulating public reflection, discussion, debate, research, and policy initiatives to address one of the central challenges facing contemporary Australian governments, industries and communities. Bibliography : p. 9Summary: Whilst the debate about a socially excluded underclass has been contentious, it has contributed to the stigmatisation of areas in which social housing is concentrated. This affects social housing tenants through increased difficulty in gaining employment due to negative perceptions of particular areas and lack of role models in terms of employment participation and educational achievement. There are also other implications, such as poor quality local services and lowered local amenity. Recent reforms to implement tighter assessment criteria for accessing social housing mean that these issues around concentrations of disadvantaged tenants are likely to increase rather than decrease. These circumstances have prompted renewed interest by urban and social planners and housing policy makers in the idea of 'social mix'.Availability: (1)
