This paper presents local and international evidence from a scoping review on the factors that influence placement moves for children in out-of-home care (OOHC). The stability of a child’s placement has a significant impact on the child’s wellbeing and outcomes. Understanding what a placement move is and why it happens can help to inform work with children, carers, families of origin and communities. This paper aims to support practitioners in making evidence-informed placement decisions when working with children and carers in OOHC.
