The transformation of the former Kinchela Boys Home site acknowledges the pain it holds and the community’s aspirations for healing into the future. It will become a national site of truth telling and healing for all Australians to experience.

What is truth telling?

Truth telling is education that supports healing for individuals and intergenerational healing for families and communities. The KBH Survivors (‘Uncles’) are active in the healing of country with their ‘Unlocking our Past to free Our Future’ Mobile Education Centre experience. This experience connects them back to the communities they and other Aboriginal children were forcibly removed from under the policies that created the Stolen Generations.

The proposed transformation of the former Kinchela Boys Home site is an extension of this work. It is only at this site that what happened there can truly be understood. By making visible what happened there and transforming it into a national site of truth telling and healing, they are helping us heal the legacies of the Stolen Generations. 

Your support of the Uncles and KBHAC's work provides an opportunity for you to help stop the pain that continues to be felt across this country, ensuring this history can never be repeated, and allowing lasting intergenerational healing to start.
