Summary

Looking After Children is an assessment, case-planning and review system designed in the UK to promote positive development outcomes among children and young people who are required to live away from their families of origin. This report provides an overview of Looking After Children, and argues that the approach may have measurable benefits for child care services in Australia. Implementation projects already developing the Looking After Children materials in Australia are described, and a trial implementation in Victoria is profiled, including an evaluation of the pilot conducted by the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
