International Social Service (ISS) Australia provides social work and legal services to families, children and single adults across international borders. Our intercountry services include family tracing and reunification, international family mediation, kinship care and other child welfare matters, and support and legal assistance for families experiencing international parental child abduction.
ISS Australia is the independent Australian arm of the global International Social Service network, spanning over 120 countries worldwide. We receive government funding for some services, but rely on fees, individual and organisational donors, membership fees and other income to continue providing a full range of services.
