On Wednesday 20th March 2019, CREATE released a report “Out-of-Home Care in Australia: Children and Young People’s Views After 5 Years of National Standards” ,that indicates that 93% of children and young people in care report they feel safe and secure in their current placement. When asked on Radio National that morning why this is so Jacqui Reed, CREATE’s CEO said ‘I think it is because foster carers are doing an amazing job’.
The report is a follow up to CREATE’s 2013 report, and was prepared after the survey of 1275 children and young people with a care experience with a diverse range of backgrounds.
