A response to the DEECD directions paper : pathways to re-engagement through flexible learning options. / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Myconos, George.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: 23 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence response to Flexible learning options Directions Paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The government's commitment to improve both the quality and capacity of learning for young people is very welcome. However, the Brotherhood believes a range of additional reforms to current youth support services that go beyond the classroom are still required to significantly improve completion rates and enable a smooth transition to work opportunities. The Brotherhood believes that high quality education occurs in many forms and in many settings. While acknowledging that retention within the mainstream educational setting is the ideal pathway, there is a need to sustain programs educating young Australians beyond the mainstream school setting. The Brotherhood's position on flexible learning options, and on appropriate responses to disengagement from education, is informed by a growing awareness of the value of 'adult' and 'hands-on' learning principles. It is also informed by its experience of successful programs, and its knowledge of the challenges facing providers of flexible learning options, and those faced by young people and families experiencing hardship.Availability: (1)

This book from the late 1980s draws on the stories of 57 families who agreed to keep detailed records of their income and expenditure for a year, so that others might understand the effects of poverty on people s lives.

Barriers to effective climate change adaptation : submission to the Productivity Commission inquiry / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Johnson, Victoria.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. : Brotherhood of St Laurence, 2012Description: 8 p. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: In this submission, The Brotherhood of St Laurence presents our responses in summary form. We are keen to seek opportunities to engage more fully with the Commission as the inquiry develops. The Brotherhood believes any effort toward climate change adaptation must be based on the three complementary principles of equity, environmental effectiveness and economic efficiency It should also target those most vulnerable to negative impacts of climate change and climate change policy and build the capacity of those with the least capacity to adapt to a changing climate. It must improve social equity and increase the inclusion of the most socially excluded. While this submission focuses on areas of specific interest to the Brotherhood, we recognise that a coherent national approach to climate change adaptation is essential for the wellbeing of all Australians, particularly those who are already disadvantaged.Availability: (1)

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2011 Bibliography : p. 9Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence is primarily concerned with the social inclusion of those most disadvantaged in society, which involves the organisation in striving to improve access to both employment and quality services for those most in need. This submission responds to those recommendations in the Productivity Commission's Early Childhood Development Workforce draft research report (June 2011) that would most affect this group. The Brotherhood of St Laurence maintains its unequivocal support for the recent reforms that will provide a framework for managing the quality and consistency of early childhood education and care (ECEC) across Australia. Our particular concern remains that urgent consideration be given to ensuring access to and affordability of ECEC for Australia's low-income parents. ; NAPIER STREET CHILD AND FAMILY RESOURCE CENTRE ; AUSTRALIA.

BSL submission to the Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers /

by Houston, Angus | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Aristotle, Paris | L'Estrange, Michael.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2012Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence recommends the following essentials to a solution: a) Accessible and timely processing of asylum claims through a strong and coordinated regional framework , in accordance with the Refugees Convention and Protocol ; whether in Australia or in transit countries in the region. Guaranteed resettlement to a refugee receiving country that is time-bound, requiring a significant increase in refugee settlement places in Australia and elsewhere to avoid refugees left languishing for years in the region. Ability to live/ earn/ not be detained during processing ; whether in Australia or in transit countries in the region; in line with UNHCR Guidelines. Strong enough functioning of the above three points so it is not a 'pull' to get on a boat as the only solution (this is compared with deterrence solutions that punish refugees). Multi-dimensional solutions that that go beyond essential border management l or countersmuggling and represent a genuine regional cooperation and re-settlement framework.Availability: (1)
