What is happening in Australian housing markets? : why policy makers should be concerned

by Woods, Gavin.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. [Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne] [2004]Description: 15 p.Other title: Oswald Barnett oration | F. Oswald Barnett Oration ; 11th.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: F. OSWALD BARNETT ORATION 11th Annual F. Oswald Barnett Oration, Tuesday 9 November 2004.Summary: As a campaigner for housing justice, and a commissioner on the Board of the Housing Commission of Victoria, I feel sure that Oswald Barnett would be alarmed at recent trends in Australian housing markets. There is growing polarisation in Australian housing markets between those who have attained or will attain home ownership, and those who will spend their housing careers in private rental housing. Those reliant on private rental housing do not share in the capital gains and tax advantages that accrue to homeowners. In addition, there is growing evidence both in Australia (Wood et. al. 2004) and in the United States (Quigley and Raphael, 2004) that low-income renter households have to grapple with rising housing costs that are accounting for an increasing share of their incomes.Availability: (1)

The approach was formally documented in 1997 with the release of the SAAP Case Management Resource Kit. This research synthesis project was initiated with the intention to provide a rigorous and independent evidence base for informing practice and policy, in particular the negotiation of the next SAAP program agreement. > The research synthesis aims to provide an evidence-based understanding of how case management works to contribute to the development of more effective responses to the needs of people experiencing homelessness. This report defines case management and synthesises the international scientific evidence on case management practice for the homelessness sector." -- AbstractAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Wired community @ Collingwood : final evaluation report /

by Isoquant Consulting.

Publisher: Ivanhoe, Vic. Isoquant Consulting 2010Description: 69 p.Summary: There is increasing evidence that the lack of access to information and communication technology (ICT) or the ?digital divide? severely limits education, employment and economic prospects. The Wired Community@Collingwood project is based in one of the Victorian Government Neighbourhood renewal communities on the Collingwood Housing Estate. The estate is a public housing estate located around three kilometers from the Central Business District of Melbourne and provides low cost housing to people with a low socio-economic profile and recent migrants and refugees. Infoxchange, a not-for-profit community ICT provider with a mission that clearly states the direction of the organisation as establishing technology for social justice, led the partnership based on the success of a similar strategy at Atherton Gardens. The Wired Community@Collingwood project aims to provide communication, learning and employment opportunities through ICT to all Collingwood estate residents across approximately 950 dwellings. ; The Availability: No items available
