Scoping Study and research
The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) has undertaken a scoping study to map the current support available for people affected by forced adoptions, determine how the system currently meets their needs and identify gaps in the service system. The scoping study has developed service model options that strengthen and enhance the existing services to provide better support to those affected by forced adoptions.
Impacts of past adoption practices
AIFS has previously undertaken research to improve the understanding of the impacts of past forced adoption practices:
- Impact of past adoption practices : Summary of key issues from Australian research 2010
- Past adoption experiences : National Research Study on the Service Response to Past Adoption Practices 2012
