We’re pleased to announce that we have been given $50,000 by the Department of Education and Child Development to create a monument in recognition of those affected by past forced adoption policies and practices.
The money will be used to create a memorial – likely to be a statue or other artwork – and was granted at the personal behest of Premier Jay Weatherill.
The money was made available after a memorial was suggested to the Premier by mothers who were present when, in August 2012, he apologised on behalf of the State Government for the forced adoption policies of the past.

Our Post Adoption Support Services (PASS) will be facilitating community consultations soon. For more information, please contact Nikki Hartmann on 8245 8100.
