Sister Kate's Child and Family Care Services was the name given to the administrative body that ran the Sister Kate's Children's Home and Mogumber Training Centre after they were combined during 1980 - 1981 as part of a restructure of Uniting Church agencies. In 1988, following the appointment of Dean Collard as Director a year earlier, the organisation was renamed 'Manguri'.
