Summary

"Young people leaving state care are arguably one of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in society. The social and economic costs associated with the current failure to provide adequate leaving-care and post-care supports to care-leavers are significant both for the individuals involved and the broader community. This book draws on new researched-based Australian studies and refers to local and international evidence in analysing leaving-care policy and practice. It provides much needed information on the relationships between care-leaver experiences, support programs and their outcomes, and our understanding of 'what works' with different groups of care-leavers"--Back cover.
