Former Residents of St Vincent's Nudgee

  • provide brief counselling and support to former residents who contact us or the Department about their time in care at St Vincent’s Home
  • help former residents to link with other services established to support Forgotten Australians
  • organise and facilitate regular gatherings at Nudgee for former residents and their families
  • organise and coordinate a biennially-held reunion for former residents, family, friends and staff of St Vincent's Home.
