Access and Equity Guide for Services Working with Young People: How To Develop and Implement Your Own A&E Policy. Second Edition.
Napoli, Sandra; Wong, Debbie
The aim of this guide is to help youth services workers in New South Wales (Australia) develop and implement their own access and equity policy for their organizations. The focus is on addressing the access barriers to young people from a non-English speaking background, but many of the issues, strategies, and processes discussed are applicable to other groups of young people, especially those from minority groups. The Australian Federal Government has developed social justice and access and equity strategies to ensure that all Australians receive equal treatment and an equal share of resources to which they are entitled. The policy developed by the Youth Action and Policy Association, Inc., serves as an example to organizations needing to develop policies. Specific advice is offered for developing the background for the access and equity policy and writing the policy. A sample action plan is included, and 59 organizations, individuals, and publications are listed for further information. (SLD)
