The Structural Drivers of Homelessness : Exploring the relationships between housing market, labour market, demographics, service availability and homelessness in Victoria. /

by Batterham, Deb.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. University of Adelaide 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes Bibliography. "This research was undertaken as a short masters thesis at RMIT, and was supervised by. Prof. Gavin Wood. This work was supported by Hanover and additional supervision was provided by Dr Shelley Mallett at Hanover." "Presented at the Australasian Housing Researchers Conference in Adelaide in February 2012."Summary: "The specialist homelessness sector and state and federal governments have argued that tight housing markets are one of the key structural factors driving homelessness. Specifically it is argued that limited availability of low cost rental stock both causes homelessness and prevents its resolution. However, neither homelessness nor housing market research has provided population level evidence to directly support this claim. To address this gap this study explored the relationship between tight housing markets and rates of homelessness, using data from administrative sources, the Counting the Homeless Collection and the 2006 Census across Statistical Subdivisions in Victoria. The relationships between rates of homelessness and weak labour markets, demographic factors, and the location of homelessness services were also investigated. A key finding was that areas with relatively higher proportions of private rental stock and lower median rents had higher rates of homelessness. Median household income had a strong moderating effect on the relationship between rates of homelessness and median rents in an area, suggesting a critical relationship between private rental stock and household income. These findings are explained as the combined effect of sorting and an effective shortage of low-cost rental housing. Regression modelling showed that three key variables ? the cost and amount of private rental housing and household income ? could explain 45% of the variation in rates of homelessness across Victoria. This paper will contextualize these and other findings within the literature, and discuss policy implications and future research concerns."--from paper.Availability: (1)

While attention has been given to the relationship between poor mental health and homelessness, persons with other types of disability – physical, sensory, intellectual – are also at risk. The goal of this research is to understand the homelessness risks confronting persons with a disability and how best to meet their needs. This project addresses research priorities around improving service practice; understanding referral pathways through services; preventing homelessness through early intervention; and, identifying resilience and protective factorsAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The spatial dynamics of homelessness in Australia 2001-2011

by Batterham, Deb | Wood, Gavin | Mallett, Shelley.

Publisher: Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute Melbourne, Australia 2014Description: Electronic.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Australia has a rich bank of qualitative research that describes the circumstances, personal characteristics, and practices of people who experience homelessness. More recently research has investigated the pathways into and out of homelessness. However, to date there has been little investigation of the structural drivers of homelessness and minimal use of quantitative evidence to inform an understanding of the role that housing and labour market conditions play in shaping whether people are more or less vulnerable to homelessness. This project aims to fill this knowledge gap. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Human services: identifying sectors for reform : a response to the Productivity Commission issues paper

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Mallett, Shelley.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2016Description: 57 p. : ill PDF.Other title: Submission to Productivity Commission inquiry into human services sectors for reform.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: August 2016Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the opportunity for dialogue with the Productivity Commission on the important issue of human services reform. We share the Treasurer’s concern about the future sustainability of Australia’s human services sector and are keen to begin a national conversation about how we can best address the challenges ahead. Unmet human need generates significant long-term costs and lost productivity, contributing to slower economic growth and widening inequality. If future governments are to have the capacity to meet the needs and develop the capabilities of their citizens, it is vital that we address the inefficiencies in the current provision model and think boldly and creatively about how we can innovate to make better use of the resources available and ensure ongoing sustainability of communities. The issues paper frames the role of government in human services as the funder, regulator and, in some cases, direct provider. We feel this framing is too narrow and does not capture the government’s role as a creator of public value (Moore 1994, p. 296). Public value includes both the economic and social value, which together serve to address market failure, allow society to function and deliver outcomes, rather than outputs, for communities.

Basic Income : trade-offs and bottom lines.

by Bowman, Dina | Brotherhood of St Laurence. Research and Policy Centre | Mallett, Shelley | Cooney-O'Donoghue, Diarmuid.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2017Description: 33 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: June 2017 Working PaperSummary: In a changing employment and budgetary context, there is renewed interest in the concept of a basic income – a form of social security in which individuals receive a regular, often unconditional payment from either government or a public institution. This working paper examines the purpose and intent of key basic income proposals and trials in Australia and overseas. It then proposes a nine-dimension framework, expanded from the framework of De Wispelaere and Stirton (2004), for assessing basic income policies, especially their capacity to underpin economic security. The paper is part of a program of activities to honour Professor Ronald Henderson’s work on poverty, social security and basic income. Conducted throughout 2016 and 2017, the program involves a partnership between the University of Melbourne and Brotherhood of St Laurence, supported by the Henderson family.

Paying attention to the future : piloting the Certificate 1 in Developing Independence in out-of-home care settings

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2017Description: xi, 48 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: February 2017Summary: Out-of-home care is designed to protect children and young people who are at risk of abuse and neglect, but is often ineffective in helping these young people to remain engaged in education, pursue personal goals and achieve economic independence. The foundation level Certificate I in Developing Independence, developed for Education First Youth Foyers, is being piloted in residential care as a fresh approach to help address this gap. The stage 1 evaluation report examined the enablers and barriers to engaging young people and recommended strategies to improve student readiness and adapt residential care practice.

Transition to work community of practice : practice guide

by Brown, Diane | Brotherhood of St Laurence. Research and Policy Centre | James, Sally | Mallett, Shelley | McTiernan, Niamh | Orchard, Nicholas | Cull, Emma.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2017Description: iv, 75 p. ill.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: August 2017 First published in March 2017; To develop this Practice Guide, BSL led a co-design process with the Transition to Work Community of Practice. Collectively, the CoP organisations tested and refined a number of foundational documents and tools; the feedback and expertise of their managers and CEOs, and the Youth Development Coaches and Employer Engagement Officers of each of these organsations (listed below), was instrumental in the development of this Practice Guide: Workways, Gen-Z Employment, Vocational Partnerships Group, School Industry Partnership, Australia Community Support Organisation, Colony 47, YouthWorX NT, Joblink Midwest, Anglicare South Australia, Brophy Family and Youth Services Summary: For several years now, the BSL has been developing and testing a different approach to working with young people experiencing disadvantage across a number of settings including employment, education and housing. In particular the TtW CoP Model has drawn on the approach taken by the Youth Transitions Program (YTP)2 and the EFY Foyers. The YTP was initially developed by the BSL in 2010 and delivered across three sites in western Melbourne with the aim of building the work aspirations and capabilities of young people experiencing disadvantage to engage in further learning and/or work. It provided a structured training component as well as connections to real world opportunities, engagement with the local community and referral to health and wellbeing services. In 2014, the BSL and Launch Housing (formerly Hanover Welfare Services) developed the EFY Foyer model with three Victorian Foyers currently operating at co-located Technical and Further Education (TAFE) sites across Victoria – two in Melbourne at Holmesglen TAFE in Glen Waverly and Bendigo Kangan TAFE in Broadmeadows, and one at Shepparton’s GO TAFE in regional Victoria. EFY Foyers provide integrated learning and student accommodation in mainstream educational settings for young people who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness, and prepares them to build the foundations for a sustainable livelihood. The model embeds an Advantaged Thinking approach in all its practices, processes and tools, which are designed to promote and build young people’s aspirations, skills and capacities. By prioritising engagement with education, the model builds young people’s connections to mainstream education, services and opportunities. Coupled with the research and evaluative work conducted by the BSL’s Research and Policy Centre, the learnings from these programs have informed the development of a set of core principles and features of a model. Through the TtW Community of Practice, this model is being tested and refined using the extensive expertise of the TtW CoP members, and adapted to suit local community contexts.

Transition to Work National Community of Practice : insights from year 1

by van Kooy, John | Brotherhood of St Laurence. Research and Policy Centre | Brown, Diane | Bowman, Dina | Mallett, Shelley.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2017Description: 40 p. ill.Other title: Transition to Work National Community of Practice evaluation report.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: June 2017 Summary: This document presents summaries of the first three strands as three distinct but consecutive reports. The three reports can be read as standalone documents, or as a series. Report 1: Conceptual Framework for the National Community of Practice serves as a foundational document for the CoP, and importantly, for subsequent evaluation. The ambition of the CoP is to develop and demonstrate an alternative to traditional responses to addressing youth unemployment. This requires clarity about the problem to be addressed. Report 1 sets out our understanding of youth unemployment as a multi-level problem, and in turn outlines what should underpin an effective, multi-level solution. It does this by referencing relevant bodies of literature, and situating the rational for the CoP approach within the context of a changing human services sector. Report 2: Implementation of the Community of Practice Model uses interview data and self-reported scorecards to provide insights into the challenges and highlights of implementing the CoP model across 12 diverse locations,1 as well as the establishment of the CoP itself. Recommendations for Year 2 are provided, based on these insights. Report 3: Year 1 Outcome Review provides a review of the available data on young people participating in CoP TtW services for the period March – December 2016, focusing on cohort characteristics and outcomes achieved in the first two quarters of operation. The report also outlines some key learnings and recommendations in regards to data collection for the remainder of the CoP project. Recommendations and actions taken to address them are collated and presented on the next page. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
