Scotforth House Report 1992 by Janet Smith QC

The Report of the Scotforth House Inquiry into child abuse, authored by Janet Smith QC, commissioned by Lancashire County Council and published November 1992 has been released by Lancashire County Council.

The report is nearly 400 pages long and is released in 4 parts.

I have not had time even to skim through the Report and so any comments, context, summary or corrections would be gratefully appreciated and received. It appears to be about child abuse but not sexual abuse.

Please note that victims of abuse may be triggered by reading this blog or reports
