Although the information on each Casework File varies, they include brief histories of family background, reports about the child's parents, children admitted or committed to the care of the Minister as State wards or committed to departmental institutions, and on foster home placements.
They can also include correspondence concerning contact between parents and children, name changes and requests for adoption.
If a child or young person was reunited with their family, put up for adoption or married (by applying to the courts) the File was discontinued. Otherwise, the File was discontinued when the young person turned 18.
According to Connecting Kin (1998), there are approximately 30,000 Family Casework 'C' Files.
