Approved Children's Home


Approved Children’s Home was a term applied to Homes that had been certified for the care of children under the relevant state legislation. In Tasmania, under the Child Welfare Act 1960, Approved Children’s Homes were run by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis. The government paid Managers maintenance for each child accommodated in the Home. In Tasmania, Approved Children’s Homes replaced Certified Children’s Homes, also run by volunteers, which were specifically for wards of state.
