Care leavers can apply to the Salvation Army for information and records about their time in care.
A two page application form will need to be completed. The form will ask for contact details, personal and family information to assist with a record search and identification. The application requests copies of a drivers licence and birth certificate or 100 points of identification. Those who don't have enough official documents can ask the Care Leavers of Australia Network (CLAN) or the Find & Connect Support Service to confirm their identity to the Salvation Army.
Those applying for information about a third party will need consent from that person or the executor of their estate.
