Who is this leaflet for?

This leaflet is for children and young people who are in care; those who have been adopted from care; and those who are living with their birth parents after being in care.

 It is about the findings of a study called Care Pathways and Outcomes. This study found out what happened to all children who were under five years old and in care in Northern Ireland on 31st March 2000.  It found out who they were living with and how they were getting on from that time up to 31st March 2004. 

This booklet is divided into two parts. 

Section One looks at where the children were living.  Section Two is about what adoptive parents, birth parents, and foster parents said.
