February 2010 Bibliography : p. 34-36 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This report sets out arguments for a much shorter working week. It proposes a radical change in what is considered 'normal' down from 40 hours or more, to 21 hours. While people can choose to work longer or shorter hours, we propose that 21 hours, or its equivalent spread across the calendar year, should become the standard that is generally expected by government, employers, trade unions, employees, and everyone else.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A climate of suffering : the real costs of living with inaction on climate change : Mental health and community wellbeing in the wake of extreme weather /

by Climate Institute.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Climate Institute 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 27-28Summary: This report addresses a big gap in the current public debate about climate change and how we should respond to it. There has been much legitimate concern about economic consequences and the risks to property, jobs and export earnings, but there has been a failure to discuss the consequences of climate change for human wellbeing and health. This report will help us understand the 'human face' of climate change; that is, what it means for us, for our sense of security and that of our friends, our families and our neighbours. This great and complex human induced disruption to the global environment is not just 'somewhere out there'. Increasingly, climate change will weaken the environmental and social conditions that underpin our physical and psychological health.Availability: (1)

Housing Ministers' Conference February 2010Summary: This discussion paper is part of consultations to develop a national quality framework (NQF) that will maximise the outcomes and life opportunities for those experiencing or at risk of homelessness. A national quality framework (NQF) aims to deliver ongoing improvement and better integration of services delivered by specialist homelessness and allied and mainstream organisations. Some 105,000 Australians experience homelessness on any given day. Many others are at risk of becoming homeless. People who are homeless or at risk are one of the most vulnerable and marginalised groups in our community. All governments are committed to improving outcomes for people who are homeless and reducing the overall number of homeless people. A national quality framework will provide a platform for services to deliver an improved and more integrated service response to clients with greater national consistency. This will assist people who are homeless to get the help and support they need when they need it whichwill improve their long term outcomes.Availability: (1)

A safe and supportive family environment for children : key components and links to child outcomes /

by Mullan, Killian | Australia. Department of Social Services | Higgins, Daryl.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Department of Social Services 2014Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Bibliography : p. 72-77Summary: While most children live in safe and supportive environments, governments are aware that too many children are becoming known to child protection services. This has led to a shift in thinking away from solely concentrating on responding to 'risk of harm' reports towards a broader public health approach to protecting all of Australia's children, reducing the likelihood of children coming to the attention of statutory authorities. This report aims to understand more about the prevalence of different types of family environments in society and to explore the influence of these environments on different child outcomes. Using data from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children, we used latent class cluster analysis to identify different family environments and analysed the associations between these environments and particular child outcomes.Availability: (1)

Publisher: West Perth, W.A. Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: "This paper reports on research (both primary research and a literature review), undertaken with the aim of demonstrating strategies for successful inclusion into Australian society of children and families from culturally and linguistically different (CaLD) backgrounds. We recognise that CaLD children and families are commonly disadvantaged through being part of a minority group in Australia, their experiences prior to migration (for example refugee trauma), the different values and practices they may encounter here, the difficulty of learning a new language, the problems they face having qualifications and experience ratified, and the varying forms of racism the may experience. A number of innovative and highly successful programmes operate in different areas of Australia that are very successful in supporting CaLD families." -- Summary. ; CULTURALLY AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE (CALD)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
