Page history last edited by Social Policy Library 10 months, 1 week ago

 

 

1957

BSL became increasingly involved in community organisations, supporting coordination of State and voluntary welfare services for the promotion of all aspects of community health (Victorian Council of Social Service and its Family Case-work subcommittee; Old People’s Welfare Council; Victorian Council for Mental Hygiene; Society for the Promotion of Village Settlements for Elderly People; Howard League for Penal Reform ) [1]

 

1961

University Students Meet Social Problems - approximately twenty students lived at Morven and in a work and study week were introduced to the problems of the aged, the care of dependent children, mental retardation, rehabilitation, and the needs of developing countries.  The program involved days spent visiting and working in institutions and evenings spent in discussion with an expert from the same field. [2]

 

1962

University Students Meet Social Problems - approximately twenty students lived at Morven and in a work and study week were introduced to the problems of the aged, the care of dependent children, mental retardation, rehabilitation, and the needs of developing countries.  The program involved days spent visiting and working in institutions and evenings spent in discussion with an expert from the same field.

1967

The BSL agreed to make Morven available to the Sunbury Mental Hospital for a holiday for 60 male patients (in three groups of 20), who were housed under canvas. [4]

 

1968

Sixty patients from Sunbury Mental Hospital had a holiday at Morven (in groups of 20), accommodated in the youth centre tents as in 1967.  A group of patients also returned to put a new roof on the boat shed and others visited Carrum Downs during the year to help in grounds maintenance and other jobs. [5]
