CREATE’s new report, Transitioning to Adulthood from Out-of-Home Care: Independence or Interdependence? is now available.
CREATE has released a new report entitled Transitioning to Adulthood from Out-of-Home Care: Independence or Interdependence? This report dives into some of the big issues faced by young people transitioning from care including housing, education, youth justice involvement and leaving care planning. Following on from our previous research our latest report investigates what has changed in the last 10 years for young people leaving care in Australia – what’s gotten worse, what’s improved, and what is the same. Our findings? We need to rethink the idea of “leaving care” altogether if we are to see a meaningful improvement in the lives of young people leaving care around Australia.
