About the Author

Associate Professor Suellen Murray is based in the Centre for Applied Social Research at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia. She has specialised in research in two areas of social policy: the life histories of adult care-leavers and related social policy and social work practice; and violence against women and its related policy and practice responses. Suellen is the author of several books and numerous papers on social work and social policy.

Reviews

"An ambitious book on an immensely significant but often marginalised topic. Suellen Murray's respectful, accessible and compassionate writing provides a foundation for cross-pollination of policy ideas and practices. A must-read." Cathy Humphreys, Professor of Social Work, University of Melbourne
"A pioneering work in the largely uncharted, and vast, territory of life after care. In bringing together diverse areas of existing work, this valuable book will be welcomed by a global audience." Dr Jim Goddard, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Bradford, Chairperson, Care Leavers Association
