This correspondence series was first created by the Social Development Branch of the Northern Territory Administration while the Territory was under the control of the Commonwealth Government. It was continued after self government by the Department of Community Development. These are subject files dealing with many different welfare matters including correspondence about receiving homes with the Director of the Department of Social Welfare in Tasmania.
Most government records are open for research 30 years after the records were created. Some records may be subject to restrictions due to their sensitive or confidential nature.
Please contact the Archives for information about how to apply for access to closed records. A number of Fact Sheets for researchers are available on the Archives website.
The SD prefix refers to Social Development branch.
