Summary
  • This inquiry investigated the role of the Commonwealth Government in contributing to forced adoptions, and the potential role of the Commonwealth in developing a national framework to assist states and territories to address the consequences for the mothers, their families and children who were subject to forced adoption policies. This report presents the findings and recommendations of the Inquiry. Sections include: post-war period policies on adoption; mothers' experiences of forced adoption; forced consent; the experiences of adopted people; the impact of previous Commonwealth policies and practices, including social security benefits and adoption legislation; the need for a national framework; the need for an apology for past wrongs; the need for counselling and mental health support services; compensation, grievance procedures, and legal avenues for redress; access to information and birth registration; adoption statistics 1950-2010; and future directions.
