Some records are restricted. Restricted records contain personal, medical and/or sensitive information, and researchers may be required to meet special access conditions. This might include seeking permission from the person or organisation that created the records and in some cases University of Melbourne Archives will ask researchers to sign a Deed of Undertaking to protect people's privacy.
The Citizens' Welfare Service of Victoria was established as the Charity Organisation Society in 1887 to help coordinate Melbourne's charitable and welfare organisations. It adopted the name Citizens' Welfare Service in 1947, reflecting a change in its activity towards case-work counselling.
