Protecting Indigenous children

Views of carers and young people on "out-of-home care"
Daryl Higgins, Leah Bromfield, Jenny Higgins and Nicholas Richardson

Abstract

The views of Indigenous young people in care, as well as the views of carers of Indigenous young people about their experiences and needs, the challenges they have faced, and their views on promising practices are described. These views were gathered during focus groups conducted with Indigenous young people in care, and with both Indigenous and non Indigenous carers of Indigenous young people in two Australian jurisdictions.
