What is the Forced Adoption Support Service?

The Forced Adoption Support Service is a free service providing support, advice, case coordination and other support relating to forced adoption practices and effects.

The service was established following the government inquiry and National Apology to people affected by forced adoption policies and practices.

Our team of skilled practitioners are trained in trauma work to support people in dealing with the impacts of forced adoption and to improve their wellbeing.
