Webinar: Supporting young parents with an out-of-home care experience
Wed September 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Supporting young parents with an out-of-home care experience
In partnership with the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS)
Many young people with experience of out-of-home care (OOHC) have complex histories of trauma and neglect and generally poorer health, education and employment outcomes than their peers. They are also more likely to become parents at a young age and to have their children enter the child protection system or be taken into care. Evidence suggests that trauma-informed and therapeutic models of support can lead to better outcomes. This webinar will interest practitioners working in the child, family welfare sector who support young parents with experience of OOHC.
