Residential Care of Children



Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses residential care for children and young people in Australia. It provides the statistical data on the status and usage, within the child welfare system, of residential programs for children and young people in Australia. In doing so, it highlights the extent to which Australia, unlike other Western-type economies, has significantly reduced the usage, not necessarily successfully, of these types of programs.
