Placement and support

Out-of-home care services look after children and young people when a family needs support, in cases of family conflict or if there is a significant risk of harm or abuse in the family home. Support services help the children and young people to cope with their experiences and assist their families to deal with the issues that led to the placement of their child.

Adoption services provide counselling and advice for birth parents, assess prospective adoptive parents and arrange the adoption of infants and children who cannot live at home. These children are placed with adoptive parents to form a new family, which is later legalised by an adoption order. Adopted children may have ongoing contact with their birth parents.
