This series includes records with both open and restricted access. Open access records can be ordered from SROWA by any member of the public. Individuals will need to apply to the Department of Communities, Freedom of Information Unit in order to access restricted records.
This series includes records relating to the administration of children's homes, missions, children's courts, child migration programs, foster care programs, and records relating to the ill-treatment of children.
It also contains the annual reports of the departments, records relating to the passing of legislation, records relating to policy development, and correspondence with other state government departments, such as the Justice Department, and external agencies.
The below document contains a list of items in this series that may be of relevance to Care Leavers. The items are arranged by the Home/Institution or theme that they refer to.
We do not currently have any records linked to this organisation, but records may exist. The Find & Connect Support Service can help people who lived in orphanages and children's institutions look for their records.
