Resource Centre

The resource centre at Lotus Place has been designed to work for a range of activities, including:

  • opportunities for social and personal development through peer lunches, small group education, arts, training and personal  development  opportunities
  • a base for the Historical Abuse Network
  • a regular calendar of group activities and events
  • a range of counselling and specialist services.     

All the services and functions of the Centre reflect the feedback of Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants.      


Lotus Place features an open-plan multi-purpose activity, lounge and computer lab space, as well as kitchen facilities. There is a designated art space, one-on-one and small group working/meeting spaces as well as private counselling rooms.

These are in addition to the dedicated area for our peer workers to carry out a range of peer participation activities including advocacy and community education about issues that affect Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants.

In 2011 the Queensland Department of Communities conducted a survey of Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants regarding the services they felt would best meet their needs (Snapshot of Consultations with Forgotten Australians). The results of this survey helped inform the facilities and services that are now provided at the Resource Centre.

Staff continue to work closely with those who use the Centre to make sure the services and activities that are provided, are relevant to people’s needs and interests.
