Inquiry into Children in Institutional and Other Forms of Care, Commonwealth of Australia


In May 1982, an inquiry began by the Senate Standing Committee on Social Welfare. The result of this inquiry was the report, ‘Children in Institutional and Other Forms of Care: a national perspective’ (1985). The Committee noted that little work had been done to date in this area, on a national basis. The Committee’s terms of reference included an examination of the changing direction of and attitudes towards institutional care. One factor behind the inquiry was the finding by a previous committee in 1982 that many youth with a background of institutional care subsequently became homeless.
