This Archival Series contains formal printed publications, Annual Reports, spanning 57 years of the Silky Oak's Children Haven. Annual Reports typically include information for shareholdres or other people about an organisations activities and finances.
Documentation has been kept from 1940 onwards. However, information on residents in the early years is sparse. All past and present residents can have access to their files and the information therein. In cases where there are reports from professionals (eg psychologist), permission is first sought from the professional to release this information.
Persons wishing to view their file may need to establish their identity before access is granted. Once this is established, a mutually suitable time to view the material is made.
All of the Annual Reports have been arranged in Chronological order. However Annual Reports that are in bound volumes are arranged with the earliest report at the front. Annual Reports that are not bound have been arranged with the most recent reports first.
