Description

Young people who are, or have been, in out-of-home care (OOHC) may be particularly vulnerable in the time after leaving care, as they adjust to independent living.

This national report is an update to the AIHW’s first report on this topic. It aims to build the evidence-base on transition outcomes up to the age of 30 by exploring patterns of income support receipt and transitions between payments using linked Australian Government (Centrelink) and state and territory (OOHC) administrative data.
