In August 1983 the Sandgate Maternal and Child Welfare Home was transferred to the Intellectual Disability Services section of the Health Department and became known as the Sandgate Centre. In 1987 the Intellectual Disability Services was transferred to the Department of Family Services. The Sandgate Centre provided both long and short term residential care for intellectually challenged children, and a family respite centre. By the early 1990s, the Centre was considered to be outdated in terms of its use as a residential facility, and was closed in April 1994
