Bringing Them Home Program

Bringing Them Home Program

 

 Mallee District Aboriginal Services' Bringing Them Home Program aims to deliver counselling and support to community members in Mildura, Swan Hill and Kerang who are part of the Stolen Generation.

 

This counselling and support is also available to families of people who were stolen or removed from their families and communities.

The service is completely confidential and our indigenous staff understand the sensitivity of clients' personal information and stories. Clients can feel safe and protected in accessing the service.

 

When you are ready to take this journey, you can  sit down with one of the Bringing Them Home workers and they will have a yarn with you about the details you have. They can visit you at home, if this is more comfortable.

They will refer you to appropriate support and counselling if necessary and help you find out the information you want to know.

 

Bringing Them Home workers are trained to assist in family tracking and reunification in conjunction with Koori Heritage Trust, Link Up and Connecting Home.

This service is for you so you are in complete control of this journey. 

The national Bringing Them Home Program was created as a response to the Bringing Them Home report of the 1997 National inquiry into the separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their families.
