Sheridan Report 1982

The Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (Northern Ireland) has released a copy of the Sheridan Report [2] in response to a Freedom of Information Request [1].

This appears to be a post Kincora Hughes Report Assessment of Northern Ireland Departments Care Home Supervision.

My preliminary assessment is that in the aftermath of Kincora, it appears that the DHSS from Britain assessed the Northern Ireland equivalents handling of the supervision of childrens homes and hostels and this is the report.

I try and release reports as quickly as possible so that others who the reports mean more to, may read and study them so this may not be entirely correct. Any corrections or additions gladly received.
There is much information held in Northern Ireland and if anyone would like to help apply for some of this information, please contact me.

Please note that victims of abuse may be triggered by reading this report. The Sanctuary for the Abused [3] has advice on how to prevent triggers.  National Association for People Abused in Childhood [4] has a freephone helpline and has links to local support groups. Other useful sites are One in Four [5] and Havoca [6]
