Welcome to the Open Place web site.

On this web site you will find information about the services we provide and how Forgotten Australians can access these services.

We are committed to continuing and expanding our outreach capacity in order to better serve isolated Forgotten Australians and isolated communities.

A great achievement for Forgotten Australians is the announcement of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuses. Please visit our
Royal Commission page under "About Forgotten Australians" for information and updates.

Open Place will continue to provide information and updates via our web site and by mail.
