Parkerville Children's Home Incorporated (also known as the Parkerville Association) was the body established in June 1925 to manage the functions and assets of the Parkerville Children's Home. In 2005, Parkerville Children's Home Incorporated changed its name to Parkerville Children and Youth Care (Inc).

Details

At first, all members and Trustees of Parkerville Children's Home Incorporated were also members of the Community of the Sisters of the Church. In 1949, the Anglican Diocese of Perth became more deeply involved with the Parkerville Children's Home Incorporated, with Whittington (p.437) describing the members as 'six persons who hold office of Diocesan Trustee and the Diocesan Secretary' and by 1953, no Sisters (members of the Community of the Sisters of the Church) were members of the Parkerville Children's Home Incorporated.

From February 1929 until around 1937, a committee known as the Parkerville Board of Control managed the finances of the Home on behalf of Parkerville Children's Home Incorporated.

In 2005, Parkerville Children's Home Incorporated changed its name to Parkerville Children and Youth Care (Inc).
