This chapter discusses the impact of Second World War on the social work of the Charity Organization Society in Melbourne. It explains that the war forced the government to do more for the poor and the number of cases handled by the COS declined significantly from 1938 to 1947 because of the growth of public welfare. In 1936 the COS was renamed the Citizens Welfare Service and then the Family Welfare Association to indicate its shift of focus on family counseling and situations in which material aid would only be a minor factor.
