Is foster and out of home care doing more harm than good?

Thursday 25th May / presented by Chris Mason

Professor Peter Jones, Dean of Medicine at Queensland’s Bond University has written in the Medical Journal of Australia calling attention to the massive increase in Australian children being taken from their families and put into foster and out-of-home-care, with 46 448 children in such care at June 2016.

The number of Indigenous children in out-of-home-care  more than tripled over the past 18 years and more than doubled for non-Indigenous children.
