New Beginnings: Issues and Needs in International Kinship Care

By Klaus Serr and David Rose

'Children and young people, many from conflict-affected countries, who arrive in Australia on orphan relative visas are highly vulnerable. In this report professionals with experience of working in this field discuss their perceptions of the needs of these young people and their carers. The authors demonstrate how the young people have been neglected by public policy, and also that current services are neither sufficient nor appropriately organised to effectively meet the needs of the young people and their families. In making visible the needs of these young people the authors have identified a significant issue that is to be addressed if these young people are to be nurtured in their development.'

-Associate Professor Margarita Frederico, La Trobe University, Melbourne.
