1980.0087 [Records of the Citizens Welfare Service Of Victoria, first accession]
Date Range of Records: 1887-1968
- Citizens Welfare Service Of Victoria [1946-1996]
This collection of Citizen's Welfare Service of Victoria records consists of Minute books of Executive Committee 1887-1968[gap]; the Child Protection Committee Minute book 1903-1923; the minute book of Victorian Provident Aid Society 1906-1961; and the minute book of the Victorian Institute of Hospital Almoners 1937-1943.

It also consists of one index of names and statistical particulars of clients 1948-1960, and a large series of case records from 1903-1966.

A surprisingly small number of files are missing from the 47,000 case records covering the years 1921 to 1966 and they offer a rare perspective on the problems of a section of the community during these 45 years. The case records also illustrate the changes in social work practice over the period.
