About OOHC transition
To help vulnerable children, young people, their families and carers in NSW, the State Government began transitioning the provision of statutory out-of-home care (OOHC) services to the non-government (NGO) sector on 1 March 2012.
The transition will take place over 5 to 10 years. The aim is to improve the NSW OOHC system to deliver better outcomes for children, young people, families and carers. This will allow Community Services caseworkers to focus on the most vulnerable families and provide the support to help prevent more children going into care.
