Indigenous care leavers in Australia : a National Scoping Study / Philips, Mendes, Rachel Standfield, Bernadette Saunders et al. (Monash University) (SNAICC - National Voice for Our Children)

by Mendes, Philip | Monash University Department of Social Work | Standfield, Rachel | Saunders, Bernadette et al | Monash University. Monash Indigenous Studies Centre | SNAICC - National Voice for Our Children.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic : Monash University, 2020Description: 249 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: In Australia, Indigenous children and young people are over-represented in all stages of the child protection system. Large numbers of Indigenous young people exit OOHC into ‘independence’ nationally each year, estimated to be approximately 1140 annually (AIHW 2020). Yet there is almost no information focusing on the experiences of this group of young people, or which examines the suitability of existing provisions to support their transition to independence. This is despite the known poor outcomes of care leavers in areas such as youth justice, homelessness, education and employment. Coupled with the recognition that Indigenous young people may face additional hardships, such as racism and disconnection from culture, it seems necessary to understand their pathway transitioning from care. This study was developed to address this knowledge gap and represents the first national study examining policy and practice concerning Indigenous young people leaving care.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

ACOSS is widely recognized as one of the most important lobby groups in Australia, and enjoys regular access to the media and key policy makers in government and the bureaucracy. Inside the Welfare Lobby examines ACOSS through relevant case studies and source material to draw attention to: -- the role that interest groups play in the formation of government policy agendas -- the lobbying strategies used by welfare advocacy groups to influence welfare state outcomes -- the relationship between the welfare sector and other key lobby groups and political parties -- the impact of key contemporary influences such as neo-liberalism and economic globalization which have arguably transformed the political context within which welfare advocacy groups operate.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Young people leaving state out-of-home care : Australian policy and practice /

by Mendes, Philip | Johnson, Guy | Moslehuddin, Badal.

Publisher: North Melbourne, Vic. Australian Scholarly Publishing 2011Description: xi, 197 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Young people leaving state care are arguably one of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in society. The social and economic costs associated with the current failure to provide adequate leaving care and post-care supports to care leavers are significant both for the individuals involved and the broader community. This book draws from the findings of a number of new research-based Australian studies combined with chapters based on local and international evidence that critically analyse existing leaving care policy and practice. It adds to our knowledge by providing badly needed information on the relationship between care leaver experiences, support programs and outcomes, and our understanding of 'what works' with different groups of care leavers.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
