Foster Care Integrated Funding Model: Evaluation of draft model

Past project

This project involves critiquing the draft Foster Care Integrated Funding Model that has been developed by Berry Street, Victoria, analysing the impact of the increased cost for the delivery of home-based care based on the funding model; and providing a comparative cost analysis of the model against Residential Care, Therapeutic Foster Care (Victoria) and Contingency Placements. The critique and analysis will be situated in the context of developing a model of professional foster care and addressing why reform is needed in the provision of home-based foster care services.
