Abstract/Summary The Records Access Project (RAP) was one part of the much larger Who Am I? project led by Professor Cathy Humphreys at the University of Melbourne. The Who Am I? project is a multi-disciplinary action research project investigating the role played by records in the health, well-being and identity construction of children and young people in out-of-home care and of adults who were in care as children. Research partners included the University of Melbourne, Australian Catholic University, eleven Victorian community service organisations (CSOs), Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency, Department of Human Services (DHS), and the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare. The RAP research was concerned with access to records or the third part of the 'record-keeping continuum' (where the three parts are record-making, archiving and access). Central to the RAP research was to have input directly from care-leavers about accessing their care records. Thus, the research was based in in-depth interviews with care-leavers in which access to their records was explored in detail.
