Lady Dugan Children's Home


The Lady Dugan Children’s Home was established by the Social Welfare Department in 1970. It mostly housed children aged between two and five years, and their school age siblings. It had capacity for 34 children. The Home ceased to operate in April 1976, and its residents were transferred into family group homes and other placements.

The Lady Dugan Children’s Home was established when the Social Welfare Department leased a home from the Red Cross, initially for three years, to ease overcrowding at Allambie Reception Centre.
