Description

This snapshot presents a summary of the results of two state-wide surveys conducted by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) in 2015 – the [NSW] National Out-of-Home Care Survey and the NSW Residential Care Survey. The surveys asked children and young people about their views and experiences of care. The NSW results were generally encouraging across all types of care, with children and young people responding positively across all indicators. However, the results from the NSW Residential Care survey were generally less positive than results from the [NSW] National OOHC Survey.
