Out of Home Care Quality Assurance Framework
Recognising that Care and Protection Service (CPS) currently oversees the Out of Home Care Framework that delivers a range of services to children and young people in foster care, kinship care and residential care, the aim of this project is to build knowledge about cost effective Out of Home Care services that have the best chance of producing good outcomes for children and young people and that this will be used to aid in the development of a strategy to ensure the adequate supply and quality of Out of Home Care placements.
