20 Apr 2007
Description

This second report from a Brotherhood of St Laurence study commissioned by Camcare, the Rotary Club of Hawthorn and Foundation Boroondara explores child poverty and related service needs in Boroondara, a generally affluent municipality in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, informed by local welfare agencies and some parents experiencing exclusion. The researchers found that in such a municipality, general affluence can increase the exclusion of disadvantaged people. There is a need to address structural causes (unemployment, shortage of affordable housing) as well as individual issues, and for collaboration involving three levels of government and community members.
