ABOUT US

About Connecting Home

Connecting Home is committed to providing a broad range of wrap around services to survivors of the Stolen Generations and their families.

In addition to our support services, we also provide information and education to the wider community regarding Stolen Generations history and current issues.

Connecting Home was established in direct response to reports such as the Bringing Them Home report and Closing the Gap – with sensitivity and understanding that past removal policies still affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities.As such, Connecting Home aims to respond to the needs of not only those people who are directly affected by such policies, but their children, partners and families as well.

Connecting Home defines a survivor of the Stolen Generations as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person, who was removed or separated from family, land, language and culture as a result of past policies, including adoption, foster care and institutionalisation.

ABOUT US

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to support Stolen Generations and their families on their journeys towards healing and to help them continue to build resilience and cultural strength. We work collaboratively with our partner agencies and related services to deliver the best model of care we can for our clients.

OUR HISTORY

Serving the needs of Stolen Generations since 2010

Stolen Generations Victoria Ltd was established in 2010 as part of the Victorian State Government’s commitment to support and address the needs of people affected by practices and policies of removing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from Family, Community, Country and Culture.  Following the closure of Stolen Generations Vic Ltd in February 2010, when that service at Wurruk Avenue in Preston closed its doors in March 2010, Connecting Home was opened in April 2010.

Since that time, Connecting Home has provided support to hundreds of members of the Stolen Generations and their families.  We walk together with survivors of the Stolen Generations and their families on their journeys to achieve healing and to help them strengthen connections to family, community and Culture.
