In 1955, the Carry On Club of Victoria applied for Hurlingham to be declared an 'approved children's home' under the Children's Welfare Act 1954. The 'Carry On Club Home "Hurlingham"' was gazetted as an approved children's home in January 1956.
Carry On (Victoria) holds some historical material relating to children's homes run by the Carry On Club. It has Minutes relating to the management of Hurlingham in Brighton (1946-1963), as well as annual reports. Unfortunately, it is very likely that personal records of former residents have been destroyed. Former residents are very welcome to contact Carry On (Victoria) with enquiries about its historical records.
