Contained in the following alphabetical list are Children’s Homes and Institutions that some people may be familiar with.

All these ‘places of safety’ are institutions where allegations of child abuse have been made.

Any Government department and local authority associated with any of these places, are forever damned for allowing the abuse of children in care to continue uninterrupted for decades.

I have drawn these names from many sources, including blogs, official databases and from the shark infested waters of Solicitors Websites.

I cannot take the credit for the ‘discovery’ of all of these names as many people are working towards the same goal of bringing to the fore the massive scale of child abuse that has always existed in the shadowy world of establishment care.

This is by no means complete, and if there is a residential home or institution that is not listed here please feel free to contact me so I can add them.

      I am so glad to have been able to help in some way, and of course happy for you and the other survivors who have waited so long to see justice finally served. πŸ˜€

    • Hello Rhian,
      I am just curious as a friend of mine has needed to voice his opinion. Ia there any chance of pm

  3. woodend. evil place, ran by evil bullying thugs. glad to see that the police have already interviewed some again under caution in the latest investigation into that place. “mum, where is Daddy gone?” “well son, he used to work in a care home, hitting kids, now he’s on a special wing with nonces for his own protection..” if only.

  4. Thomas bean sentanced to 16 years jimmy if it wasnent for this site sum witnesses mightnt have gone to police thanx for staying round and for ur private advise n support n kindness & 4 not giving up on us god bless u x

    • Unfortunately, although there are some awful and genuine cases of abuse on here, this is one of the biggest miscarriages of justice I know of. I was brought up in care homes and Tom looked after me and many others ( and many of us who REALLY know him know he is innocent ); he never once laid a hand on any of us (and there are a lot of us who have offered to give character references in his defence, as we know this case was a farce). There was not ONE shred of evidence against him – just the word of the ‘victims’ (one of these ‘victims’ – Robert Jones/Sutcliffe – actually went to prison for burglary of Tom Bean’s house. Go figure!). Also, the above poster (Rhian) has lied by stating that Tom was once a scout leader – he never was, so why lie, Rhian? I urge all those on this site that believe in the truth to investigate this case further and see how flawed it truly is.

        • Yes; that is quite correct – quite different from a scout leader. Anyway, that is all by the by.

          Although I respect what you are trying to achieve on this site (naming and shaming REAL paedophiles), I am quite concerned as to the fact that individuals can target any person and accuse them of this most abhorrent of crimes.

          In this particular case – with regards to Tom Bean – unfortunately he was found guilty without any evidence against him whatsoever (this case has certainly changed my opinion on the British legal system; I used to place my faith in it wholeheartedly – not anymore); it was just the ‘victims’ words against his, and the jury obviously believed that no-one would lie about such a thing (or accuse an innocent man in order to claim compensation…).

          I would never, ever defend anyone I thought for one solitary second was a paedophile.


          I have seen the damage first-hand that these manipulating and selfish scumbags do.

          But, Tom Bean is an innocent man, and I believe that one day – hopefully not too far in the future – the truth will out.

          • Hi James, you have every right to voice your opinions on here and elsewhere, as is anyone else – but I assure you that The Outlaw would ever knowingly name any person who has been accused, without there being evidence to support it.

            Thomas Bean, whether he was innocent or not has been convicted in open court on 22 separate counts, neither you nor I can deny that is true – and thus cannot be disputed.

            I am also more than aware than many innocent men have been falsely accused of being child abusers and Paedophiles, based only on accusations and very little – if no evidence whatsoever – and some of those have been convicted, and sentenced, and unfortunately one of whom, has since died in prison.

            Evidence is now emerging that he was almost certainly innocent.

            If this is indeed ‘A miscarriage of justice’ as you say, the Outlaw is willing to publish any supporting evidence that you or others may have to add weight to this claim, so it can be viewed and/or scrutinised in a fair and balanced manner.

            I guarantee that the readers here will spot the slightest discrepancy or something that simply does not ‘add up’.

            Which will if of course, mean there is a doubt.

            I do agree 100% that some people will and have lied, manipulated and also persuaded others to make false allegations against innocent people – for financial gain or spite or to get back at someone they believe has wronged them in some way.

            Only they can answer why they do such things.

            Read the articles on here in regard to the allegations of abuse that were said to have occurred at Bryn Estyn for instance.

            In all cases, a false accusation is an abhorrent act, whatever way you look at it, and personally I find it reprehensible and will do everything within my power to bring any instances I find to people’s attention.

            There are published articles on here, that highlight false allegations and discuss miscarriages of justice James, I think you will find that the Outlaw offers balance – even when other sites are fully prepared to string people up based on no evidence whatsoever.

            • I am pleased that the Outlaw offers balanced views and that you, yourself, are fully aware that certain individuals make false allegations against others for personal reasons or financial gain (in Tom Bean’s case, one of the ‘victims’, Robert Jones/Sutcliffe, had written a threatening letter to Tom a few years back – after he had been imprisoned for the burglary of Mr Bean’s home).

              As I stated before – if I thought for one second someone was a paedophile, I would have absolutely nothing to do with them. And I certainly would not be openly defending them on websites such as this one. But I – and many, many others – know this man to be innocent; and as I stated before, I believe that one day the truth will out. In the meantime, I know that Tom’s family and many friends and supporters will continue to fight for him and for the truth. Unfortunately, friends of the ‘victims’ have already set up a false facebook page (in Tom’s name) and have sent rather sick and cruel messages to his family members and friends (thankfully this was reported to the police and dealt with), and have also verbally abused certain members of his family in public, which is not fair.

              Anyway, I keep in constant contact with Tom’s family and am always kept up-to-date on the situation; therefore, I shall certainly post on here any supporting evidence that may be discovered in the future.

              I do respect what you are trying to do on this site, although – obviously – I cannot agree with you with regards to this case. As you say, the jury did find Tom guilty; but I would argue that there have been many instances in the past in which an innocent individual has been found guilty and later proved to be totally innocent.

              All the best.

            • You may find this of interest in regard to people making vindictive claims of abuse against people in North Wales.

              You will find there are some striking similarities.


              I can only work with the evidence presented at the time James, if evidence emerges at a later date which casts doubts upon someone’s guilt, I will of course present that so people can decide for themselves.

              The case of Timothy Evans, another South Walian incidentally, was an example of how an innocent man was hanged for murder in 1950 – based solely on the testimony of the narcissist psychopath John Christie, who was later found to have committed the crimes himself.
