The Home was named after Winifred Doris (Joyce) Wilding, one of the founders of OPAL and former matron of OPAL House in South Brisbane.
Wilding was the Matron of Joyce Wilding Home from 1970, but she resigned the position in 1971, following disagreement with the policies of the new OPAL board.
OPAL has advised the Find & Connect web resource that they no longer have any records relating to children who were resident in their homes.
We do not currently have any records linked to this organisation, but records may exist. The Find & Connect Support Service can help people who lived in orphanages and children's institutions look for their records.
