HAVE YOUR SAY BEFORE ITS TO LATE!
Berry Street has made the decision to cease operating Open Place after 30 June 2020. Open Place will continue to provide services as normal during the transition to new service arrangements from July 2020.
We are proud to have delivered Open Place for the last 9 years, providing connection, belonging and understanding for many who have been in institutional care prior to 1990. It has been a difficult decision, but we believe it is in the best interests of Forgotten Australians (also known as pre-1990 Care Leavers) and in line with Berry Street’s core focus on children and young people and our commitment to participating in the National Redress Scheme.
Over coming months, we will take opportunities to reflect on and celebrate the success of Open Place and the people who have made the service what it is.
