Menzies Inc. is a not for profit organisation that was established in 2000. It was previously known as the Menzies Home for Children. Menzies Inc. has provided residential care to children and young people since 2000 in a suburban home setting. The ages of children range from to 4 to 17 and up to four children can be accommodated in each of Menzies Inc.'s four Homes. From April 2015 the organisation decided to no longer provide residential care and instead to focus on philanthropy, service and program support.
