The Caring for Forgotten Australians, Former Child Migrants and Stolen Generations Information Package includes a booklet, presentation, and training facilitator’s guide. This information package was designed to inform, advise, and support those who deliver aged care for Forgotten Australians.

Helping Hand has an array of resources relating to aged care, including brochures and fact sheets listing available support. Resources are available on their site for both out-of-home and in-home care for those wishing to stay in their current accommodation. They have also created a resource, Forgotten Australians, Real Care the Second Time Around, that aims to assist providers of aged care and their understanding of the experiences faced by Forgotten Australians.
