Young people who leave or transition out of out-of-home care (OOHC) arrangements commonly experience poorer outcomes across a range of indicators — including higher rates of homelessness, unemployment, reliance on public assistance, physical and mental health problems, and contact with the criminal justice system — relative to their counterparts in the general population.
It is recognised that young people transitioning from care are often ill-equipped for independent living and that the type and amount of support they receive is insufficient to prevent adverse outcomes.
The aim of this systematic review is to identify programs and/or interventions that improve outcomes for youth transitioning from the out-of-home care system into adult living arrangements.
