The Ngangganawili Group Home, in Wiluna, was a government-run group home established to provide emergency accommodation for children. It is known to have been operating in 1982.

Details

The Department for Community Welfare said in its annual report in 1982 (Signposts 2004, p.374) that one of the factors that led to the establishment of the Ngangganawili Group Home was that 'parents of children were temporarily imprisoned for drunkenness, leaving the children without adequate support'.
