This research project was funded by the Australian Government under the 2009-13 National Homelessness Research Agenda.

The purpose of this study is to contribute to the understanding of the post care experience of young people who leave care in terms of homelessness and risk of homelessness with specific reference to prevention of homelessness.  The scoping study focuses on two states, namely Victoria and Queensland, and seeks to draw on the experiences of young adults who have recently left care to inform future directions in research, policy and practice.
