Organisation Lisgar Training Home for Domestic Servants (1870 - 1909)
- Anglican, Care Provider and Training Institution
Lisgar Training Home for Domestic Servants was begun by Captain David and Mrs Maria Scott in 1870 and became part of the Church of England Deaconess Institution in 1893. It was located in Elizabeth Street Ashfield and may have been located in other premises in its early years.
Lisgar Training Home was intended to provide training in domestic service for women of low education. Some state wards were referred there when they reached the age of 14 and some Aboriginal girls were sent there for training.
It appears there are no surviving records of the home.
