Applications are now open for the Stolen Generations Reparations Package. Designed by and for Aboriginal people, the package aims to help address the lasting trauma and suffering caused by the forced removal of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children from their families, culture, and Country.

There are a range of reparations available including access to funded counselling sessions with a provider of the person’s choosing. Patients with terminal or critical illness are eligible for advance payments if they submit a form from their treating doctor or other medical professional.

As eligible patients may want to discuss the packages with their health or social workers, health professionals are being encouraged to learn more. To understand who is eligible and what is available, click here. Any questions can be directed to the Stolen Generations Reparations Unit on 1800 566 071 or via email
