The Minutes of the Management Committee for Karingal Youth Hostel consist of two manila folders containing foolscap roneod minutes. Some printed annual reports and miscellaneous correspondence are included.


Access Conditions

For access to records related to former Church of England and Anglican Children's Homes and other institutions held at the Anglican Archives please contact the Diocesan Archivist.

Many records contain personal information. In order to maintain the confidentiality of other people, a written application for information is required, and proof of the identity of the applicant needs to be provided. Where the request is about someone other than the applicant, permission from that person or other evidence of eligibility to access that information must be provided.

The Anglican Archives is not open to the public. Requests for records need to be made in writing. An appointment can be made to discuss records if required.

The Archives does not charge any fees to former residents of Church of England/Anglican Homes seeking their records.


The date ranges of the two folders of Minutes are 1954-1958 & 1958-1963. The folders have an index inside the front cover.

Discussion in the Minutes mostly concerns the general running of home. Some information about boys appears under the heading of individual names. Applications for admission include names of applicants. One entry, 11/10/61 relates specifically to Aboriginal boys noting that the hostel agreed to take in 'part-Aboriginal boys' aged between 15 and 18. However it would provide accommodation for no more than two at one time. The Minues note that the admissions committee would consider each application on 'individual merit'.
