Join us. Become a CLAN member today and be supported.

We offer a range of free services, assistance and advocacy to all Care Leavers, and CLAN members.


Redress is for Care Leavers who were sexually used in Orphanages, Children’s Homes, Mission’s and Foster Care. Sadly physical, psychological and emotional abuse, child labour in laundry’s, farms and in orphanages are not covered by this Redress scheme. However, CLAN has always advocated for all forms of abuse and neglect to be acknowledged and those Care Leavers are equally deserving of Redress.

We are here to support and assist you in filling out your Redress application form, you can also call 1800 008 774 for further assistance.
