The Intercountry Adoptee and Family Support Service (ICAFSS) is a free, national service that provides post-adoption support to young adoptees, adult adoptees and adoptive parents.
Relationships Australia will begin providing this service from 1 July 2021.
ICAFSS provides information and referral support to prospective adoptive parents before and during the intercountry adoption process and post-adoption support to families formed by expatriate adoptions.
The service provides counselling, information and support to help your family deal with the complexities and unique challenges that intercountry adoption may bring during a lifetime.
The service is delivered nationwide through the Relationships Australia network.
We are open from 9 am to 5 pm with flexibility for early and evening appointments.
