This paper outlines the results of a literature review about the issues relevant to kinship care in Australia, with special reference to policies and practices in New South Wales. The importance of kinship care is highlighted as a result of current state and territory reform processes and the increasing prevalence of kinship care placements across Australia. Review findings identify many key issues that indicate a need for changes to be made to the processes and supportive functions of kinship care.
