Care Leavers of Australia Network (CLAN), founded in 2000 in Sydney, is a support and advocacy group for people brought up in care away from their family as state wards or Home children raised in Children's Homes, orphanages or other institutions, or in foster care. CLAN is also for anyone who has a close family member who was placed in 'care'. The founding members of CLAN are Leonie Sheedy and Joanna Penglase, both 'care leavers' who had for years been involved in awareness-raising about the issues facing people who experienced out of home 'care' as children.
