Glastonbury- Geelong Protestant Orphanage was the new name given in 1955 to the Geelong and Western District Protestant Orphanage. In 1977, the name changed again, to Glastonbury Children's Home.
In 1955, Glastonbury- Geelong Protestant Orphanage applied to the Victorian government for registration as an approved children's home. The inclusion of Glastonbury in its new name acknowledged one of the first patrons of the orphanage, James Austin.
Reflecting the changing nature of child welfare at that time, in 1974, the organisation established its first family group home, located at 22 The Avenue, Belmont (Geelong).
In 1977, the name changed again, to Glastonbury Children's Home.
