Addressing social disadvantage through volunteering /

by Haski-Leventhal, Debbie | Centre for Social Impact.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Centre for Social Impact 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2009Summary: In this paper we review the current state of volunteering in Australia, particularly volunteering by socially disadvantaged groups. After presenting the advantages and challenges involved with volunteering, the relation of volunteering to socially disadvantaged groups is discussed: as the recipients of voluntary services and as providers. Two innovative concepts are presented to suggest how the Government can help to enhance both in a way that will facilitate social inclusion: volunteerability (the ability of individuals to volunteer) and recruitability (the ability of organisations to recruit volunteers). By presenting many examples from the Western World, various options by which the Government can enhance both are discussed.Availability: (1)

The Great White North and Voluntary Action: Canada's relationship with Beveridge, social welfare, and social justice / Peter R. Elson Includes index Donated by Paul SmythSummary: "The relationship between the state and the voluntary sector has changed significantly since 1948 when Beveridge's major report, Voluntary Action, was first published. Sixty years later, a group of historians analyse and reassess the impact of Beveridge's ideas about voluntary action for social advance in this timely volume. Using examples from the UK, Australasia and Canada, this book clearly articulates the importance and significance of Beveridge's ideas on voluntary action within an international context. ; With the emphasis of governments on the importance of the voluntary or 'third sector' and the development of policies and practices to enhance social capital, build civil society and engage communities, this book will be invaluable for those interested in how the third sector has evolved over time. It will be of interest to historians, social policy researchers, political theorists, economists and educationalists." -- Publisher webpageAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: Caulfield East, Vic. Centre for Community Networking Research, Monash University & Victorian Council of Social Service 2010Description: 28 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2010Summary: "Doing IT Better is a three-year project to build information and communications technology (ICT) capacity in the Victorian community services sector. Community service organisations like government and commercial organisations — are now dependent on ICT systems to support basic organisational functions and service delivery. But limited financial resources and a shortage of ICT skills and know-how in the sector have left most agencies struggling. Improved ICT capacity will enable improve organisational efficiencies, enabling more resources to be directed where it really counts: supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged Victorians via the direct service work and advocacy that is the community services sector's core business." -- Doing IT Better websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
