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, but we help Care Leavers wherever they live.
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 for Care Leavers who are able to attend our offices in Sydney and Melbourne.

CLAN will always fight for Redress for ALL forms of abuse, neglect, and child labour in Orphanages, Children's Homes, Foster Care, Training Farms, Missions, and Laundries.
