In order to examine current care planning experiences and practices for children whose primary carers are arrested and imprisoned in Victoria and New South Wales, this multi-method study gathered primary data from 151 imprisoned primary carers, 27 carers, three children and two adult children, along with 124 professional stakeholders. Secondary data was sought from both statutory and non-government organisations about imprisoned parents and children. Relevant rights, legislative and policy documents were also reviewed.
