Catholic Family Welfare Bureau
Years of OperationKnown to exist in 1976. Other details uncertain, but did not provide residential care.
Role Of FacilitySeemed to provide some type of peak agency reporting function regarding capital development and maintenance expenditure for various Catholic organisations who provided residential care. It is possible that its role was principally a source of funds, via loans or grants. In 1976, such organisations included: Castledare, Clontarf, Good Shepherd Sisters, St Francis Xavier Mission and the Catherine McAuley Centre.
RecordsIt is unknown where records from this agency are held, but it is possible that the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth may have some records, which are likely to pertain to capital expenditure and maintenance of residential child care facilities only.
