Description
In March 1944 a home was opened at Sandgate for the admission of children for short-term care. In most cases the children's mothers had been admitted to hospital to be confined or the mothers had been taken suddenly ill and no other suitable arrangements for the children's care could be made. By 30th June, fifty-two children had been admitted. The home was closed between 1 July 1982 and 30 June 1983.
