About Link-Up Victoria

Who we are

Link-Up Victoria assist Stolen Generations survivors to confidently reclaim their Aboriginal identity, wholeheartedly embrace their Aboriginal heritage, and return back into the caring arms of their people.

We support Stolen Generations to find and reunite with family, reconnect with Culture, and proudly walk on their traditional Country.

Who we support

Link-Up Victoria was founded in 1990 to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, aged 18 years and over and living in Victoria, who have been directly affected by past government policies and who were separated from their families and culture through forced removal, being fostered, adopted, or raised in institutions.

How we work

Link-Up provides support services to members of the Stolen Generations to find family, and for family to find members who are Stolen Generations. 

We support the healing journeys of those who were removed from family and Culture by providing culturally sensitive social, emotional, and wellbeing support services and reunions.

Link-Up is the only service in Victoria to provide reunions for members of the Stolen Generations. These reunions help create connections to family, Culture and Country to encourage healing and give survivors a sense of who they are and where they belong.
