Out-of-home care is the placement of children or young people away from their parents, due to concern that they are at risk of significant harm. The purpose of out-of-home care as defined by government, is to provide children and young people who are unable to live at home due to the risk of significant harm, with a placement which ensures their safety and healthy development and achieves stability.
