Submission – Find & Connect Web Resource

Home  →  Submissions Library  → Submission – Find & Connect Web Resource


The Find & Connect web resource is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services to document the history of child welfare in Australia. The resource assists people who grew up in out-of-home care, including Forgotten Australians, Former Child Migrants and members of the Stolen Generations, to discover and access information and records about their time in care. It is managed by the Find & Connect web resource team, based at the University of Melbourne.

This submission makes recommendations to address the ongoing inequality between Victorian First Peoples and other Australians trying to discover their history in care, their families, and their experience of records access.
