History

Following a change of permanent head, the Public Charities and Children's Department became one department, the State Children's Department in 1917, to reflect the greater emphasis placed on protection of juveniles.

In 1927 the Child Welfare Act replaced the State Children Act and the departmental name was changed accordingly. The Department continued to be responsible for the Perth Children's Court.
