Children in care are 10 times more likely to end up in prison by the time they reach 24 than those who grew up outside the system, official figures suggest. The study by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published today found that looked-after children were more at risk of coming into contact with the criminal justice system during early adulthood than their peers.

Department for Education’s (DfE) statistics on looked-after children in England, released earlier this month, showed the number of unaccompanied children in care grew by 1,430 in the year to March 2022, surpassing the overall increase of 1,390 in the care population. The latter rose for the 14th consecutive year, by 2%, to 82,170.

No part of Scotland was “immune” to abuse of children in foster care over more than eight decades, an inquiry has heard.

This report presents the findings of an online survey and individual interviews which explored the experiences of carers providing out-of-home care to infants in New South Wales. While there is increasing research related to the care of children and young people requiring out-of-home Care, there is comparatively less specifically related to the care of infants. The findings highlight a need to provide increased training, support, and resources for new carers of infants in out-of-home care.
