From July 1986 until March 1988 the Minister for the Department of Youth and Community Services was John Aquilina. He had a policy of deinstitutionalisation, so closed down a number of children's institutions and homes.
In March 1988 the New South Wales Government changed from Labor, headed by Neville Wran, to Liberal, headed by Nick Greiner. The new government created the Department of Family and Community Services.
