A discursive article examining the proposition that provisions for young people in care should be formally extended beyond their 18th birthday when care normally ends. Debate exists as to whether this should include a legislative extension to Care as has happened in some overseas jurisdictions or whether it is more appropriate to simply extend access to dedicated support provisions. The article concludes that both may have a place as long as the complexity of young people's situations is adequately responded to.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
