Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
CODE 1 Child protection authority made a direct financial contribution
Where the child protection authority (or their delegate) made a payment to fund the placement, such as a foster care allowance, relative/kin allowance, or funded the residential care facility or the family group home to place clients of the child protection authority.
Note: A delegate exists where out-of-home care services have been out-sourced and a non-government organisation has been provided with the authority to place children in out-of-home care. These organisations must be funded by the child protection authority. This item should be recorded as if the organisation was the child protection authority.
CODE 2 Child protection authority offered a direct financial contribution but it was declined by the carer
Where the child protection authority (or their delegate) made an offer to fund the placement, such as a foster care allowance, relative/kin allowance, but the offer was declined by the carer.
CODE 3 Child protection authority made no financial contribution
Where the child protection authority did not make any financial contribution outside of staffing costs, e.g. workers time.
CODE 99 Not stated/inadequately described
Where it is unknown whether the child protection authority made/offered a payment to fund the placement.
