This thesis describes a study that explored how Home for Life parents experience and interpret New Zealand’s Home for Life Policy. This was achieved using a qualitative approach. Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis informed both the data collection and analysis. Interviews were carried out with 8 Home for Life parents recruited from the Canterbury area. Analysis of the interviews revealed 9 superordinate themes and 5 subordinate themes which are evaluated in detail and are compared to the existing literature. Overall, the findings of this study suggest that permanency principles and outcomes are compromised in the Home For Life programme by its policy and legislative structure, as well as its implementation. Recommendations for New Zealand’s Home for Life policy and potential future research are also outlined, and recommendations for potential changes to policy are suggested.
