Many Forgotten Australians and Care-Leavers struggle with day-to-day impacts and challenges as a result of childhood experiences.
While not all institutional or out of-home care experiences were negative, sadly a large proportion of them were incredibly traumatic, leaving many with lifelong impacts. But we’re here to help.
We commonly help Forgotten Australians and other Care-Leavers with:
“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.”
