This document aims to inform evidence-based practice in outcomes for children in care by synthesising and critically analysing Irish and international research literature. In particular, it aims to offer practitioners a resource to use in reports such as those required for court or case conferences to back up their recommendations and arguments relating to permanence and stability. Specifically, this review identifies and examines quantitative and qualitative evidence of indicators for stability and permanence outcomes for children in care, assessing the impact of socio-demographic factors such as age at entry to care and a range of socio-economic indicators on the achievement of permanence objectives.
