Identifying the most vulnerable children in out-of-home care

Close ties with adults are essential for a healthy development for young children. Now, for the first time, statistical research identifies children in out-of-home care that have a particular risk of lacking stable adult contact in their first years of life. Children in care can have a wide variety of tragic backgrounds, but common to them all is that they are taken away from their biological parents at an early age. Without close relationships with other people who can provide care for them, the consequences can be fatal. Research has repeatedly shown that children who lack stable adult relationships in the first years of their lives have an increased risk of:
• Becoming criminal as adults
• Experiencing psychosocial problems
• Becoming unemployed, and
• Not getting an education.
