In 1852, the Benevolent Society set up the Society for the Protection of Children and leased Ormond House.

Ormond House was subsequently purchased by the Government and the running of it was carried out by the Society.

In 1880 Government funding was withdrawn and the number of children dismissed.  A portion of the building was used as the first Childrens’ Court and the building was also used as a Home for delinquent children. A small number of children remained whose parents paid for their maintenance. The building was used in the war effort and was also used as the depot for boarding out.

It was sold in 1925.
