Working Together to Care for Kids

AIFS was commissioned and funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS) to conduct the survey Working Together to Care for Kids: A Survey of Foster and Relative/kinship Carers. This national survey involved telephone interviews with 2,203 foster and relative/kinship carers in late 2016 and was aimed at providing a better understanding of the characteristics and needs of the carers of children who are living in out-of-home care in Australia.
