The APB and Singleton Children’s Home

The APB and Singleton Children’s “Home”. The circumstances by which children are sent to the home become more dubious. AIM shifts from a response to homelessness to assimilation through apprenticeships of Aboriginal youth in station labour and domestic service. When the APB starts asserting more influence, children are sent to Singleton after they are removed from communities, often a long way away from Singleton. The Singleton Home takes in boys as well as girls. These children are removed from their communities on the basis of racial criteria (lighter skinned children are most usually taken) from all over the state.
