Date Unveiled: The memorial was unveiled on by
the Child Protection Minister Robyn McSweeney and the Governor of Western Australia, Dr Ken Michael.
This memorial is jointly funded by the Western Australian and Commonwealth Governments and is dedicate
to all Western Australians who experienced institutional or out-of-home care as children.
This memorial brings the "Forgotten Australians" out of the shadows and into the light. Their most
enduring legacy will be that the people now and in the future will know their stories and build upon
them a platform for better care.
There is a strong thread that links the way a child is raised with that erson they become in adulthood.
This memorial stands as a reminder of that thread to all who create policies that affect children.
