    Scaling down

    This paper summarises the evidence base on residential care with the aim of promoting better decision making among policy makers and child welfare practitioners regarding the use of residential care. It calls for an end to the unregulated and unplanned growth of residential care in many parts of the world, prioritising ending the use of residential care for children under three, and residential care in large scale facilities.
