Many individuals placed in out-of-home care as children struggle with ongoing challenges as a result of their experiences.
The long-term impacts of a childhood spent in institutional care are complex and varied. But there is hope. We’re here to work with you to develop skills and strategies to help ease the burden of those impacts. We understand that each person visiting Wattle Place is unique, so we tailor our support services to your individual needs.
Our Find and Connect service can offer you:
“Wattle Place provides a community of people who share the experience of being placed in institutions or foster homes as children. We know how isolating and challenging life can be when you feel like no one understands what you’ve been through or what you are going through now. Wattle Place staff do understand, they listen and work to earn our trust slowly, through compassion, honesty and reliability.”

“I finally felt acknowledged and that’s all I have ever wanted. It’s a long-term process but I’m hopeful I can manage what I’ve been through as a part of my life now and not feel like I need to constantly run away. Everyone at Wattle Place made me feel so safe and supported.”
