Many voluntary organisations assisted with the repatriation process, raising money and in-kind contributions for returned soldiers, war widows and their dependants. Soon after the war the Repatriation Department invited the Red Cross to establish convalescent homes for wounded or ill soldiers. The Lady Galway Home was named after the wife of the Governor of South Australia, who founded the South Australian division of the British Red Cross Society.
