Receiving Home
The term Receiving Home refers to an institution designed to provide short term 'care' for children before they were sent to a longer term placement (for example, placed in foster care, at a children's home or a farm school). In Tasmania, this type of institution approximated the size and form of an average family home. Receiving Homes in other states could be large institutions. Sometimes children spent long periods in a Receiving Home when suitable placements could not be found for them. Children also would return to a Receiving Home after a placement broke down.
