Last year, Find & Connect was recognised in the Australian Research Council’s Engagement and Impact Assessment 2018-19 National Report.
Universities Australia took notice, and made Find & Connect a focus of the Keep It Clever #UniResearchChangesLives campaign, by developing a short video that shows the work we do, and the importance of that work.
The video features Greg Baker, a Care Leaver and valued contributor to Find & Connect, and Professor Cathy Humphreys who contributes as a Chief Investigator to Find & Connect. They explain the importance of records for people who spent time in care, and how we work with Care Leavers and researchers to help fill in some of the gaps that were created when children were removed from their family. Watch the video, and let us know what you think!

I have used the find and connect site on numerous occasions, it has helped me personally and also other careleavers to find information about the home that they grew up in.
