Abstract

The aim of this research was to identify factors that support foster carers to maintain cultural, language and religious identity for children in culturally matched and unmatched foster care placements. The research was designed to produce findings which can support government and non-government stakeholders in foster care to develop their service systems and practice frameworks for maintaining cultural identity, when placing and supporting culturally diverse children and young people in foster care.
The key research question this study set out to examine was:
- What factors in foster care practice and service systems support the maintenance of cultural, language and religious identity for children from culturally and linguistically diverse family backgrounds in foster care, when placed with culturally matched and unmatched carers? The research was conducted as a partnership between Macquarie University’s Department of Educational Studies, and Settlement Services International.
