Find and Connect client Errol said from day one he knew he was in the right place when he visited Lanterns House.

“It just had that family atmosphere that I never had,” he said.

Manager of Find and Connect Michelle Weall said the video was produced to provide an insight into the experiences of Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants and the impacts of these experiences on their lives. 

"The video also shows how important support services like Find & Connect are in helping those affected," she said.
