Uniting - Connections
The Adoption Information Service, Uniting - Connections began in 1984 with the introduction of the Victorian Adoption Act, which provided for the first time rights to the parties to adoption to access to information. Adopted persons, adoptive parents, parents who have relinquished their child and other family members can obtain information about an adoption organised by Uniting - Connections or its predecessor agencies.The Service also provides counselling, mediation and support, as well as search and outreach on behalf of people affected by adoption. In June 2020, the Adoption Information Service became part of the Uniting Heritage Service.
