There already exists in Portugal a considerable historiographical production around the theme of assistance and charity, its organisational models and mental paradigms, the welfare practices and some of the entities responsible for their implementation. Studies and research in this field are particularly developed in relation to the medieval and modern periods. However, in the latter case, scientific production has been mainly concentrated in the 16th century (first decades) and the 18th century. In addition to these aspects, we must point out the lack of organic-functional studies of archival scope, within the framework of Information and Documentation Sciences, which allow us to delimit and represent the context of production of documents, relating them to the functions of which fulfilment resulted in the creation, use and accumulation of documents by the institutions.

The general aim of this study is to perform an institutional and organic-functional characterisation of the entities that, in the city of Lisbon, between the early years of the 16th century and the last quarter of the 18th century, were responsible for ensuring the welfare function of sheltering, supporting, guiding and educating exposed children: the Royal Todos-os-Santos Hospital, the Brotherhood of the Misericórdia of Lisbon and the Mesa dos Enjeitados.
