Description: 

This information package is designed to inform, advise and support those who deliver aged care for Care Leavers — a special needs group under the Aged Care Act 1997.

Care Leavers spent time in institutional care or in out-of-home care, including orphanages and foster care, and include three distinct groups:

  1. Forgotten Australians
  2. Former Child Migrants
  3. Stolen Generations

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are warned that the package’s resources may contain images and voices of deceased persons.
