Former residents are given the original copies of letters addressed to them, school reports and certificates, wages receipts and other receipts of purchases. Anglicare Victoria will keep a copy for their record. The organisation is legally required to keep client files forever. Some former residents have added information to their client file as a way of completing the picture.
In 1997, records of the various orphanages, homes and other residences run by the three missions were transferred to Anglicare Victoria. Anglicare Victoria has now catalogued 22,000 client records which are held in safe storage and can be accessed on request.
