Transitioning from care in Australia : an evaluation of CREATE's 'What's the Plan?' campaign /

by McDowall, Joseph | CREATE Foundation.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. CREATE Foundation 2011Description: 106 p. : ill ; 30 cm.Other title: CREATE Report card 2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: To address deficits identified in previous research, in 2010 the CREATE Foundation designed and implemented a campaign to increase the number of young people approaching the stage of leaving out-of-home care who have a clear, formalized plan for life after care (referred to here as a leaving-care plan, but which also may be designated as a transition document or a final case plan). Such a plan should articulate the support young people will need in the short to medium term, and how it can be accessed to facilitate their successful transition to independence. Report Card 2011 documents the outcome of this campaign that was labelled 'What's the Plan?'. It evaluates the project's success, and suggests actions that may extend its influence in the future. To achieve the end of having more care leavers with life plans for the years following transition, CREATE decided to use a social marketing strategy whereby processes traditionally employed in commercial marketing are adapted to achieve a specified change in behaviour for the wellbeing of individuals and/or the community. The change required here was in the production of leaving-care plans. The main group whose behaviour needed to alter comprised the caseworkers in child protection departments who ultimately are responsible for formulating the type of leaving-care plan specified in state and territory legislation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
