Robgill Cottage Family Group Home


Robgill Cottage Family Group Home, in the suburb of Bardon, opened around August/September 1960. It was operated by the Methodist Church until 1977, when management was transferred to the Uniting Church. It ceased functioning as a family group home in July 1978, and its licence was surrendered in August 1981.

Robgill was licensed under the State Children Act 1911 on 27 October 1960 and the Children’s Services Act 1965 on 4 August 1966.

A publication from 1968 states that Robgill had accommodation for six children under temporary care, from 3 to 16 years of age. Children attended the nearest State primary or high school, and although the Home received children of all denominations, they attended the nearest Methodist Church and Sunday School (Social Services Queensland, 1968, p.92).
