The safety and welfare of children and young people in out-of-home care are best served by promoting strong and close relationships between the child or young person being cared for, their carer and the designated agency. The Code of Conduct aims to foster stable and positive relationships between the child or young person, their carer and the designated agency.
This Code of Conduct for Authorised Carers (the Code of Conduct) is a principle-based framework. It promotes the highest standards of conduct by authorised carers. It sets out the standards of behaviour that apply to carers. It also sets out the support and assistance that carers can expect to receive from the designated agency supervising the placement.
