"Did you suffer abuse at St Paul's Boy's Home Newhaven?"
St Paul’s Boy’s Home, was an orphanage run by the Anglican Church between 1928 and 1979 in Newhaven, Phillip Island. It was established by the Mission of St James and St John. Many boys who attended there said that the physical environment was very suitable for boys and that activities included bush walking, bird watching, fishing and swimming. But like many orphanages of the 20th century, some of the staff who were involved in the “care” of the boys were cruel, sadistic and sexually abusive.
Angela Sdrinis Legal is acting for a group of former residents of the St Paul’s Boy’s Home and is in settlement discussions with the State of Victoria and the Anglican Church to try and resolve claims for compensation.
