Project Description

Young people in and transitioning out of out-of-home care experience myriad challenges. Care leavers, including a disproportionate number of Aboriginal young people, experience adverse outcomes across a range of domains leading to high social and economic costs for the Australian community. This longitudinal study uses a population- based method to examine the pathways of young people in and transitioning from out-of-home care in Western Australia. The combined findings from the population-based data, together with an in-depth understanding of their lived experiences will identify a best practice model for improving their transition from care experiences to facilitate improved outcomes.
