Guide for use:Help on this term

A respite placement is a form of out-of-home care that is used to provide short-term accommodation for children and young people where the intention is for the child to return to their prior place of residence. Respite placements include:

  • Respite from birth family, where a child is placed in out-of-home care on a temporary basis for reasons other than child protection (e.g. the child's parents are ill or unable to care for them on a temporary basis; or as a family support mechanism to prevent entry into full time care, as part of the reunification process, as a shared cared arrangement).
  • Respite from placement, where a child spends regular, short and agreed periods of time with another carer other than their primary carer.
Collection methods:Help on this term

Code 7 'Not applicable' should be recorded if the living arrangement is not a funded out-of home care placement provided by a funded agency (e.g. living with parents, independent living, other living arrangements).
