CBERS clients

The services provided by CBERS Consultancy are available free of charge to former residents and students of Christian Brothers institutions, including Bindoon, Castledare, Clontarf and Tardun. The counselling service is also available to the families of these clients and, through funding by the Sisters of Mercy and the Sisters of Nazareth, is available to people who were residents of their childcare institutions. Some CBERS clients are former child migrants, however the service is also used by many Australian-born men and women.
