Joining CLAN

CLAN is funded by members' contributions, donations, and small grants, so we need your support to ensure that CLAN continues to operate.

Membership of CLAN is open to any person who grew up in an Orphanage, Institution or Children's Home, as a State Ward, Home Child or in foster care. Or who has a close family relative who is a care leaver. Our members are spread across Australia, New Zealand and the world.

We support anyone who grew up in a Home or institutionalized 'care', regardless of your background or your heritage.

We welcome everyone. We set memberships for Care Leavers at the lowest possible cost – as set out below.

We also have other types of memberships – also set out below.

So that our records are accurate and up-to-date, please complete and sign a membership form and send it to CLAN along with your membership fees.
