The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Child Protection has advised:

In South Australia, 93.0 per cent of children aged 0-16 years exited out-of-home care to a permanency arrangement, and did not return to out-of-home care; this is a measure of stability reported in the Report on Government Services 2022 (table 16A.40).
