Victorian Inquiry into Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Non-Government Organisations
Care Leavers Australia Network (CLAN)
Care Leavers Australia Network, 2012

In 2012, CLAN conducted research into children who absconded from Victorian orphanages and children's home. The findings were used as part of CLAN's submission to the Victorian Inquiry into Child Abuse. This research was also discussed when CLAN gave evidence to the Inquiry on 17 December 2012.

On CLAN's website, information is available on the numbers and names of children reported as absconding in the Victorian Police Gazette for the years 1939, 1949, 1951, 1959, 1964, 1966, 1967 and 1969.
