PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: April 2000Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence is appreciative of many aspects of the Interim Report. However we see significant gaps, problems and failings within it. Further, the questions which the Reference Group has provided to structure responses are not always suited to simple answers, either because of ambiguity of the wording or because approval is being sought for a number of elements at once.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Welfare reform and people with disabilities

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Other title: Policy commentary : .Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 2005; Background notes re policy commentary Welfare reform and people with disabilities This policy commentary was complied by Stephen Ziguras Note re disability statistics: The figures quoted from ABS are of people 'reporting disability'. 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).
Personal Support Programme evaluation : interim report

by Perkins, Daniel | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: viii, 55 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography: p. 52-55 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The aim of this study is to evaluate how well the Personal Support Programme (PSP) enables people with multiple non-vocational barriers to achieve economic and/or social outcomes. Interim findings suggest that PSP is a crucial and well-designed program for assisting some of the most disadvantaged job seekers, but that several factors reduce its effectiveness notably, inadequate funding to help clients access services such as education and counselling to overcome barriers. While PSP s recognition that some participants are unable to engage in employment-related activities before addressing personal barriers is vital, the lack of appropriate employment assistance integrated with personal support is an unfortunate limitation for those participants who feel ready to look for work.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Submission to the Australian Fair Pay Commission /

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Anglicare Australia.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence and Anglicare Australia 2006; Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Anglicare Australia 2006Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2006 Includes bibliographical references (p. 11)Summary: The relationship between wage levels and employment in the short termis uncertain There are some in the community who are urging the Commission to consider reducing the real value of the minimum wage over time in an attempt to stimulate low-skilled employment. We believe that this policy response is likely to have a negligible effect on employment and will hurt low-paid workers overall. Empirical evidence from other OECD countries fails to show a clear relationship between minimum wage changes and employment, and a number of studies have found no effect or only negligible increases in employment after increases in the minimum wage (see Dowrick & Quiggin 2003; Gregg 2000; Hyslop & Stillman 2004; Lemos 2004; Stewart 2002; Watson 2004) We understand that the Australian context differs from many of the countries studied in these references, such as the US and the UK. Australia is a country with one of the highest minimum wages in the OECD. However, the results do indicate that minimum wages and employment are not necessarily inversely related. We feel that there is a need for further research examining this relationship in the Australian context. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

Welfare reform? : following the 'work-first' way. /

by Carney, Terry | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Melbourne, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2007=260 2007Description: 14 p.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 7.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2007 Bibliography : 11-14Summary: Terry Carney examines the job-first rationale underpinning the Australian Government s 2005 06 welfare-to-work changes. He traces the move away from Australia s historic welfare settlement, describing it as a move from social security policy to labour market policy. He considers the implications of the 1 July 2006 changes for new claimants for sole parent and disability payments, who are effectively obliged to accept almost any job. Carney argues that what is new for Australia is that these work-first policies are now pursued within a deregulated industrial relations environment and without political debate about alternatives such as the investment state or the third way policies of Britain and parts of Europe.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
Making it work : promoting participation of job seekers with multiple barriers through the Personal Support Programme

by Perkins, Daniel.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2007Description: 142 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy | Summary Notes: December 2007 Summary: This report presents findings of an evaluation of the Personal Support Programme (PSP) by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Melbourne Citymission and Hanover Welfare Services. PSP, funded by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations and delivered by non-government and private contractors, provides two years intensive case management to job seekers facing multiple personal barriers. The research found that after involvement in the program participants had somewhat higher levels of economic and social participation and less interference from barriers. Many elements of the PSP model are consistent with best practice overseas, but two serious weaknesses are the lack of integrated employment support and the severely limited funding restricting access to specialist services for participants.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2), BSL Archives (2).
