Children who experience out-of-home care need quality recordkeeping and archiving systems to
- develop and nurture their sense of identity and connectedness to family and community;
- account for their care experiences, and
- prevent, detect, report, investigate, and take action against child neglect and abuse.
Help to transform the way records are created, captured, managed, accessed and archived for childhood out-of-home care so that we can create a better system. One which learns from the mistakes of the past and allows multiple rights in records to be recognised, respected and enacted.
