Our History

 

Link-Up (Qld) services started in 1984 in response to concerns expressed by people of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in Queensland. These concerns were later realised when the Royal Commissions into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody found that many of the deaths investigated were people who had been separated from the family and communities due to the actions of past government policies.

 

The Bringing Them Home report by the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission in 1997 confirmed the devastating effects that the removal of children has had on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, communities and cultures.

 

Link-Up (Qld) Aboriginal Corporation was incorporated as a separate body in July 1988. Since 1984, we have successfully supported and reunited many people with their families and communities.

Our Approach

 

Link-Up (Qld) Aboriginal Corporation supports the healing journeys of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have been separated from their families and cultures through forced removal, fostering, adoption and/or institutionalisation.

 

We deliver professional, culturally sensitive and confidential research, reunion and cultural wellbeing services to those over eighteen years of age.
