The Bringing Them Home Oral History project collection comprises 736 digital audio recordings. Many of these have been transcribed or summarized. Some interviews are available to listen to online. The project was funded by the Commonwealth Government as a result of recommendations made by the 1997 National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from their families. It also included interviews with people involved in the process such as welfare officers, police officers, missionaries and institutional staff. The interviews were recorded between 1998 and 2002. They relate to missions and institutions across Australia.
