In June 2022, six Forgotten Australians shared their stories with a videographer with the aim of showcasing their experiences during institutional care and the resulting impact on their lives.

Some of the Forgotten Australians saw the videos as a platform to educate stakeholders and create change. For others, it was a way of understanding their past and taking control of their stories.

By distributing these stories, the hope is that Forgotten Australians will feel seen, cared for, and less forgotten, with increased awareness and sensitivity.
