A Health Card for Medical & Dental Care for all Forgotten Australians.
We the Forgotten australian survivors call on the Federal Government to provide efficient and on going Medical Dental & Counselling to all survivors raised in Orphanages Childrens Homes & Foster Care across Australia during the last century. We would like to see this implemented in the form of a Health Card similar to the Gold Card that the War Veterans have acquired. This will not only cover Health Dental & Counselling, but will also include public transport, and other forms of transport used to help obtain and gain access to Health Care.
Forgotten Australians LOFA Study (Long-term Outcomes of Forgotten Australians Study)
People who have lived in child welfare institutions and other substitute care as children are known to have suffered significant disadvantage in their life course. This research will build knowledge about the range of experiences and outcomes for this population. It will identify critical points in care leavers’ lives and events that have contributed to the development of both positive and negative life outcomes.
