Young people transitioning from out-of-home care (OOHC) are a particularly vulnerable group due to their pre-care experiences of child abuse and neglect, their varied pathways and experiences within the OOHC system, and the current failure of any state or territory authorities to meet their corporate parenting responsibilities beyond 18 years of age. As a result, many care leavers struggle to access the same developmental opportunities and life chances as their non-care peers.
