Briefing paper

The ICPS Research to Practice Series links the findings of research undertaken by the Institute of Child Protection Studies, Australian Catholic University, to the development of policy and practice in the area of child, youth and family welfare.

This issue explores what works to help people make the choice to become a foster carers, and the strategies that can assist in supporting and retaining carers for out-of-home care. It is based on a literature review, which is part of a three-year project to identify the most effective strategies to attract, support and retain successful foster care families.
