St Anne's Group Homes were established in the 1960s on the site of St Anne's Orphanage at Liverpool. They were for children aged 2 to16 years. St Anne's group homes were also opened at Dundas, Ryde and 9 Loloma Street, Cabramatta (the latter being the site where St Anne's Emergency Centre was established). St Anne's Group Homes closed in 1977.
Copies of most records from St Anne's Group Homes and St Anne's Children's Centre are held by the Catholic Children's Homes Enquiry Service, CatholicCare Adoption Services.
Original records are held by the Sisters of Charity.
