This project aimed to enhance service delivery responses for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in the out-of-home-care system by gathering young people's views on their experiences within the service system and strategies for development. Young people and service providers were engaged in youth forums, an out-of-home-care conference and a cultural gathering and through individual and group interviews. The project was supported by an Indigenous worker and a group of youth leaders employed to guide and co-facilitate the process.
