Review into In Home Care underway

The department is conducting an independent review of the In Home Care (IHC) program.

The purpose of the review is to ensure the program is:

  • meeting its policy intent and objectives
  • supports the Australian Government’s commitment to achieving the best possible outcomes for children and families accessing early childhood education and care (ECEC).

The review will examine access to, affordability of, and quality of IHC services. It will provide evidence-based findings to inform consideration of accessibility, future investment and policy settings.
