Breaking cycles, building futures : promoting inclusion of vulnerable families in antenatal and universal early childhood services : a report on the first three stages of the project. /

by Carbone, Stephen | Department of Human Services | Fraser, Alex | Ramburuth, Rasika | Nelms, Lucy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Department of Human Services 2004Description: x, 116 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Report on the first three stages of the projectSummary: The Breaking Cycles, Building Futures project is an initiative of the Victorian State Government and is funded by the Premier’s Drug Prevention Council. It is part of the State Government’s Best Start Strategy. The project’s key aim is to identify, implement and evaluate strategies to promote more inclusive antenatal and universal early childhood services, which better engage and assist vulnerable families. The Brotherhood of St Laurence was contracted by the Department of Human Services to undertake this project. In its mission of working for an Australia free of poverty, the Brotherhood of St Laurence acknowledges the importance of efforts to better support vulnerable children and their parents, not only as an important immediate measure, but also as a strategy to prevent poverty and social exclusion in the future. The Breaking Cycles, Building Futures project is being undertaken in four stages: • a literature review • consultation with parents, service providers and peak bodies • documenting possible strategies which Best Start partnerships can adopt to help them to provide more inclusive services • working with Best Start partnerships to implement and evaluate these strategies. This document reports on the results of the first three stages and outlines the process for addressing the final stage. The study started from the assumption that antenatal and universal early childhood services (Maternal and Child Health services, kindergartens and primary schools) are an important resource for promoting the wellbeing of our children and their families. As such, it is imperative these services are available to all. The study focused on answering four key questions: • What is an inclusive service? • How inclusive are existing antenatal and universal early childhood services? • What are the barriers to inclusion? • How can these services be more inclusive so that they better engage vulnerable families? Answers to these questions were sought through a review of the national and international literature, along with an extensive community consultation process. In all, 69 parents, more than 100 service providers and more than 20 Victorian Government staff were interviewed. The vast majority of parents interviewed were experiencing a range of (often concurrent) difficulties in their lives, such as low income, unemployment, homelessness, problematic substance use, mental illness or a disability. Many were young parents (less than 20 years of age) and several were from a non-English speaking background.

Mental health : Submission to the Senate Select Committee /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 2005; Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2004Summary: The BSL welcomes this opportunity to contribute to the Inquiry by the Senate Select Committee on Mental Health. Although not a mental health service provider, many of the people with whom the BSL works are living with mental health problems, contributing to the disadvantage they experience. The Terms of Reference are broader than BSL experience or expertise. This submission, therefore, focuses on those Terms of Reference of greatest relevance to our work and to the lives of the people we support. Our starting point is that many people living with a mental illness experience levels of exclusion and discrimination that are unacceptable?and addressing the complexity of issues that compound this exclusion requires concerted leadership and action by all levels of government..Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

A somewhat smaller group is those who have 'specific limitations to core activities' (eg these are 3.4 m of the 3.9 m reporting disability. (data for education levels etc are reported separately for the two categories) Also for unemployment/education etc rates we have selected data relating to working age (15-64 years) people with a disability rather than rates for all-ages population. For further clarification read the intro to the ABS report, Disability, ageing and carers: Summary of findings.Summary: Aiming to increase the number of people with disabilities who are employed, the Australian Government has announced changed eligibility criteria for Disability Support Pension to exclude those who can work more than 15 hours per week.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
