Find and Connect

If you spent time in a children’s home or institution, were a ward of the state or placed in foster care before the end of 1989 then Relationship Australia Tasmania's Find & Connect support service may be able to assist you.

Find & Connect is a free and confidential support service provided by Relationships Australia Tasmania state-wide that can help you to:

· access personalised support and counselling;
· where possible, obtain your personal records, trace your history and understand why you were placed into care;
· connect with other services and support networks that may assist you at this time in your life;
· reconnect with family, where possible; and
· connect with other Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants through our drop-in centers and newsletter.

Who this service is for

Find and Connect is for Forgotten Australians and Child Migrants. More than 500,000 children who grew up in orphanages, foster care, children's homes or other institutions in Australia last century are sometimes known as Forgotten Australians or Former Child Migrants.
