A little about the survey

It has now been five years since CREATE’s Report Card ‘Experiencing Out-of-Home Care in Australia: The views of children and young people‘ (McDowall, 2013). This report has been fundamental in promoting the views of children and young people in care and provided a benchmark for performance against the National Standards for Out-of-Home Care (2011), a Priority Project under the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020.

CREATE’s National Survey in 2013 presented the views of 1069 children and young people aged 8-17 years. Five years on, we want to ensure we hear the voices of even more young people (including those aged up to 25 years) and hope to make this the largest study in the world to capture the views of children and young people with a care experience.

CREATE’s National Survey 2017 will ask questions framed under the eight essential life domains, as identified in the National Standards:

          • Accommodation
          • Health
          • Education
          • Employment
          • Identity
          • Culture
          • Relationships
          • Life Skills and Independence
        • You can find more detailed information about the risks and benefits of participating by reading the Participant Information Sheet:
