The report was originally published in September 1993. It is a “Review of present and planned arrangements for responding to complaints from young people in care with recommendations for further action” .
It was made in response to comments by Lord Caplan at the close of the trial of William Hogarth in July 1992. Hogarth was a residential care worker of the Social Work Department and was found guilty of 6 charges of assault over 7 homes and 3 childrens homes.
The council also say that “Within the text there is regular reference made to “Shrubhill”. This is in fact Shrubhill House which was the headquarters of Lothian Regional Council’s Department of Social Work at the time the document was written.”
At present I have only skimmed the Report I will update this post, on further reading. Any summary or comments on the Report to place it into context would be gratefully recieved.
