The VANISH VOICE Newsletter

Information and personal stories that matter to you

VANISH is a not-for-profit organisation for adults affected by adoption — including adopted people, mothers and fathers separated from a child by adoption, and other family members. VANISH also assists Forgotten Australians (Care Leavers) and donor conceived people.

We provide free confidential services including assistance with applying for records, family tracing, support with outreach and reunion, counselling, support groups and creative workshops. We also offer training for professionals about the impacts of past and forced adoption practices and ways to provide appropriate support.

Established in 1989 by and for people affected by adoption and funded by the Victorian Government, VANISH is widely respected as a lived experience-led organisation specialising in search and support. Our services are provided by a dedicated team of professionals, assisted by our wonderful volunteers, supporters and members.

“This latest newsletter is packed with amazing positive inspirational value. Reading your newsletter was possibly one of the richest, most valuable counselling sessions I’ve ever received. So thank you x”
