Abstract

Historically, children in ‘out-of-home’ care have been at risk of institutional neglect, abuse, and abandonment in ways that tragically com¬pound the difficulties they may have experienced in their family of origin. In context of a general shift away from institutional to community based services, children and young people who are administratively assessed as needing out-of-home care services are today placed mostly in foster or kin care settings.
