Housing priorities : the plight of the low-income group /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1960Description: 11 p. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 1960 An analysis of Commonwealth housing policy in relation to low-income sections of the community requiring housing, with recommendation for the 1961 Commonwealth-State Housing AgreementSummary: In the past four years there has been a considerable and much- needed increase in the construction of houses and hats in Australia. In the year 1955,82,110 houses and flats were completed. In the following two years the figures dropped to around 74,000, but since then they have climbed to an anticipated 89,900 completions in 1959-60, including 8,300 flats. This pamphlet shows that these encouraging figures of total home construction obscure the worsening of the housing situation for pensioners and low-income families who can only look to State housing authorities for adequate housing within their economic means.

Information, e-government and opportunity : a public housing estate online. /

by Meredyth, Denise | Hopkins, Liza | Ewing, Scott.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2005Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.sprc.unsw.edu.au/ASPC2005/papers/Paper200.doc' Checked: 6/10/2008 10:39:08 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: This paper summarises a four year study of the effects on 800 low-income and multiethnic households of access to free networked computers, training and information resources. The question was whether these low-income households would make use of online health, housing education and employment services, as distinct from using the resources to play games or seek entertainment. Results suggest that, although what people went looking for online varied, tenants could and did seek information on social services and did explore government websites and the resources of community agencies. This finding emerges from a study drawing on focus groups, interviews, surveys and the analysis of tenants' patterns of network use. Patterns of use show convincing evidence that the benefits of the wired community initiative include the encouragement of informal learning and self-directed information-seeking, as well as the more effective delivery of publicly and privately provided social services. The example has broader implications for debates on social partnerships, community-building and electronic government.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
