Glossary Term

Parent Following was a form of child migration by which the child or children came to Australia and the parent or parents followed afterwards. It became popular among authorities when the number of British children available to be sent to Australia fell. Single parents, not normally acceptable to the Immigration Department, could migrate to Australia under this scheme.
