by Access Economics.

Publisher: [Canberra, A.C.T.] Access Economics 2008Description: 30 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: An issues paper prepared by Access Economics for Anglicare Australia, Catholic Social Services Australia, The Salvation Army and UnitingCare Australia. Family & early years School to work Into & out of work Retirement & ageingSummary: The current global financial crisis and its likely impact on the Australian economy will have an acute impact on the most disadvantaged members of society, as well as pushing increased numbers of low and middle income earners to seek the services of welfare agencies. Even during the recent period of buoyant economic conditions, agencies were reporting growing demand, and the emergence of a new clientele of mid-stream wage earners facing severe financial stress. This has been mirrored by academic research into new indicators of disadvantage. Instability in the financial sector and its flow-on effects to the rest of the economy, can only exacerbate these problems, putting an even greater strain on what are already overstretched social services." -- Executive summaryAvailability: (1)

Salvation Army 2009Description: 48 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2009 This report has been produced as a project funded under the Australian Government's Australian Youth Forum initiative, administered by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.Summary: The Salvation Army has released a report prepared for the Federal Government's Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR). This report, supported by Business Group Australia, is the result of extensive community consultations held in mid 2009 which were designed and facilitated by The Salvation Army to provide an opportunity for the voices of disadvantaged and disempowered young people. Over 700 young people convened in 36 separate locations across Australia to talk about their concerns and to discuss directly four key themes ? the global financial crisis, access to government services, homelessness and the Compact with Young Australians. For most of these young people this was the only opportunity they have had to talk to other young people in similar circumstances and to participate in the preparation of a formal response to government. This report captures the thoughts, feelings, opinions and suggestions of the young people and uses their words to convey to government some important messages.Availability: (1)
