Maddington Scatter Cottage was established and run by Sister Kate's Child and Family Services from 1982 to 1988 and then by Manguri from 1988. The cottage accommodated Aboriginal children in a home-like setting. Children may have been placed by child welfare authorities, or privately by family or others. The cottage had been purchased with funds provided by a private donor. It closed around 1991.
