CLAN reaches out to orphans and foster kids

ANYONE who grew up in an orphanage, or who went through the state foster system, is urged to contact the Care Leavers of Australasia Network.

The media's coverage of the Royal Commission inquiry into Neerkol Orphanage has detailed some graphic evidence given by several former residents.

If the coverage has triggered any memories from the past, and you would like support, you are urged to contact CLAN on 1800 008 774.

CLAN can help anyone who wishes to make any submissions to the Royal Commission.

The network offers support to orphans across Australia and New Zealand.
