Training Home for Girls, Liverpool, Lancashire

Liverpool's Training Home for Girls was established in 1874 'for the shelter, protection, and training of young girls for domestic service, preference being given to orphans.'

The Home had premises at Vale House, 135 Saint Domingo Vale, Liverpool, with accommodation for more than 50 girls. Applicants were required to be at least 8 years old. Payment was according to the circumstances of the girl's friends, with needy cases admitted free. Girls were placed in service at the age of 16 and an outfit provided for them.

In 1882, the Home was certified to receive workhouse girls placed by Boards of Guardians.

The Home is though to have closed at around the time of the First World War.
