National Standards for Out-of-Home Care 2009-2020
(Note: although the date of this document technically ended in 2020, it remains in use. This is because the national standards have not yet been re-printed under the updated "Safe & Supported: National Framework for Protecting Australia's Children 2021-2031." That said, one of the action plans for the National Framework discusses the national standards being updated by 2025).
