List of institutions receiving child migrants

This list of institutions includes those that received child migrants and those institutions approved to receive child migrants, that did not, as far as can be established, receive children under the child migration schemes.

It is compiled from a variety of sources - every effort being made to ensure that it is a comprehensive listing. A number of institutions changed their names over time and many subsequently evolved as institutions providing other child care or related services.
