Summary
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are almost five times more likely to be placed in out-of-home care compared with non-Indigenous children, however there is a serious shortage of culturally appropriate placements to accommodate them; this project aims to identify the strengths and barriers of recruiting, retention and support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foster Carers; the second phase is to profile promising programs which offer comprehensive support for carers and young people
