Overview of care arrangements

Use this practice kit to learn how to strengthen your working relationships with children, parents, extended family and carers in the care arrangements (placement) context.

For children who are unable to live at home with parents, care arrangements cover much more than the 'placements'. They cover the whole care experience for a child. 

The kit explores topics such as participation of children, managing transitions, partnering with carers and partnering with parents. The objective is to strengthen your approach to working in partnership with children, parents, carers and their agencies to help reach better outcomes for children in care.

The kit complements procedures to Support a child in care and Provide and review care.
