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.
