Glastonbury Children's Home came into being in 1977. It was formerly known as Glastonbury - Geelong Protestant Orphanage.
The name change reflected the shift in language and policy in child welfare in Victoria, away from congregate care, towards the family group home model.
In 1977, Glastonbury purchased and took over the operation of two family group homes formerly run by St Cuthbert's Children's Home in Colac.
In 1984, the name changed again to Glastonbury Child and Family Services, signifying another shift in philosophy and practice.
