Welcome to CLAN
Care Leavers Australasia Network (CLAN) is a national, independent, peak membership body which represents, supports and advocates for people who were raised in Australian and New Zealand Orphanages, Children's Homes & Foster Care. CLAN has been operating since 2000, and has offices in Sydney and Melbourne. CLAN understands that being raised without your own family has lifelong effects which require lifelong support services.
CLAN offers free telephone counselling to any Care Leaver or a family member of a Care Leaver. You do not need to be a member to speak to one of our counsellors.
CLAN also offers face to face counselling but this is only for Care Leavers who live in Sydney and Melbourne.
