Glastonbury Child and Family Services was the new name given in 1984 to the former Glastonbury Children's Home. The name change reflected the agency's new directions and service philosophies. The history of the organisation dates back to 1854 and the establishment of the Geelong Orphan Asylum. In 2011, the organisation changed its name to Glastonbury Community Services.
