The Renwick Association began when historian and Mittagong resident Leonie Knapman became interested in the Mittagong site, having coached soccer with Renwick boys as a young mother. She organised a reunion in 2005, attended by hundreds of former residents, and since then has collected oral histories, plans, reports and other forms of documentation about the site.
A former resident of Renwick, Bill Anson, has run a website since 2005 that contains information about the homes and invites contact from former residents.
In April 2014 the Sydney Morning Herald reported this group was lobbying for the preservation of the remaining Mittagong cottages in the Renwick complex as a museum.
