Prison refers to a place for the detention of adults in secure custody, either on remand or after sentencing by a court. Adult prisons continue to be places of detention for some young people in Australia, despite the existence of specific youth and juvenile justice facilities.
The term Protestant describes a person or organisation affiliated with any one of the Protestant Churches. With child welfare, services were often clustered under the umbrella terms of Protestant and Catholic.
