Open Place acknowledges the pain and loss of childhood experienced by Forgotten Australians and we recognise the lifelong impacts of childhood trauma.
We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waterways of Australia. We support Aboriginal people's right to self-determination and culturally safe services.
Open Place is committed to providing safe, inclusive and accessible services for all people.
The Open Place suite of services is funded by the Victorian Government Department of Families, Fairness and Housing and the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
