Understanding the outcomes and contributing factors for children transitioning to adulthood in Queensland is a critical component in facilitating a successful and positive transition. Present literature does not quantify the positive and negative outcomes and their contributing factors for these children. Due to the ambiguous nature of these outcomes, staff approaches that support these outcomes are not currently understood. This study aims to identify these outcomes from the perspective of children and practitioners involved in the transition to adulthood and explore approaches used by practitioners to facilitate this transition. Ultimately, by completing this research, there will be a contribution to practice in relation to the child protection industry in establishing concepts which could develop practice standards around ways to facilitate transition from care.
