It’s estimated that around 250,000 mothers had their children forcibly removed between 1940 and 2015.

Following the Australian Government’s formal apology in 2013 to people impacted by forced adoption, our Compass Forced Adoption Support Services were established to provide free and confidential support to those affected.

"I had kept my secret for so long, but it was a relief to share it with my Compass case manager. She understood what had happened and took the time to listen to my story." - Elaine, Compass client.

Read about how Compass supported Elaine in this recent article in The Senior.
