CREATE Foundation’s GYOW Report reveals barriers to keeping children safe

Dr Joseph McDowall, Executive Director of Research for CREATE Foundation, has launched his latest research in the area of Transitioning to Independence, titled “CREATE’s Go Your Own Way resource for young people transitioning from care in Australia: An evaluation.” Read the report here.

Development of the ‘Go Your Own Way’ resource was an activity under the Second Action Plan of the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020.

“Vulnerable young people, who often have already experienced trauma through being removed from an unsafe family situation, need continued support after turning 18, rather than be expected to function totally independently as care-leavers.”
