CREATE research articles are aimed at informing the broader public, as well as service providers, about the issues affecting children and young people in care.

Although children and young people in care may generally have ongoing concerns about the same or similar issues over time; exactly how those issues impact each individual child or young person and what they think should be done to address them may differ.  CREATE research articles capture and compile the range of impacts and views to better inform care providers and others about the services they deliver.  Articles have included transition from care and supporting children and young people with a disability living in out-of-home care.
