Bishops call for an inclusive and sustainable economy
Australians are called to work for an economy that is based on principles of justice and equity – one that is at the service of all, particularly the most vulnerable and marginalised, says the Chairman of the Australian Catholic Social Justice Council, Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen. Bishop Long was speaking at the launch of the Australian Catholic Bishops’ 2017–2018 Social Justice Statement, entitled
Everyone’s Business: Developing an inclusive and sustainable economy,
which is commemorated on the last Sunday of September each year.

Youth justice is at a crossroads in Australia.

Jesuit Social Services

Comprehensive report deepens understanding of rough sleeping in Victoria
The number of people sleeping rough, including those sleeping in parks, on the streets, in cars and derelict buildings, has increased in Victoria in recent years. A subset of the broader population of people experiencing homelessness, those who are on the streets are among the most vulnerable in the state. It's important for all of us to understand the issue of homelessness more deeply so that we can be informed and take part in the political conversation. A recent report,
Rough Sleeping in Victoria
, provides fresh figures on rough sleeping, compiled over the last two years, which clearly indicates this is an issue that impacts those living in the outer suburbs, as well as in the city centre.
