Anglicare Victoria is currently one of three community service organisations in Victoria that provides an Adoption Information Service. This service is available to adopted persons, adoptive parents, parents who have relinquished their child and other family members who can obtain information about an adoption (in accordance with the Adoption Act 1984). The service also provides counselling, mediation and support, as well as search and outreach on behalf of people affected by adoption.

Further information and assistance regarding past or potential adoptions is available from the Adoption Services team at the Department of Justice and Community Safety.
