Pathways of Care is a longitudinal study on the wellbeing of children and young people placed in out-of-home care in New South Wales and the factors that influence their wellbeing. It will provide a strong evidence base to inform policy and practice, and in turn improve decision making about how best to support children and young people who have experienced abuse and neglect. Data collection commenced in May 2011 and will be completed by June 2016. This article introduces the study and describes its research objectives, sample frame, retention strategies, and methodology.
