Jillings Report

The Jillings Report was published by Wrexham  Council [9] and Denbighshire Council [10] on their websites on 8th July 2013. However Wrexham Council  chose to publish it for only two months and then have bizarrely took it down. Denbighshire Coucncil nominally have still got it, but it is difficult to search for.

So now it is extremely difficult to find the Jillings Report by search engine. It is available from just one Jillings Freedom of Information request [3] of the many. The others were given the now defunct link to the Councils website. Ingenious if the intention was to obfuscate, but dumb if the intention was to be transparent.

** Update 2015 Feb 13 – I have now uploaded the Jillings Report to this wordpress site and so it is now available from these links

Jillings Part 2  pdf lesser redacted 14 Mb **end of update

This was the less heavily redacted version of Jillings than the previous one published around 2000.

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

Part 1 [20]                     Part 2  [21]                   Explanation of Reasons for Redactions [22]

The Jillings Report was the Report of the three year, £13 million investigation into the physical and sexual abuse of children in care homes in the counties of Clywd and Gwynedd between 1974 and 1990 [19]

3. The Report is also available to download from this site [8] under the heading North Wales. Many other relevant documents are also available there.  This is associated with the Bryn Alyn victims blogspot[7] where there is a mass of information about North Wales Child abuse.

4. It is available on Denbighshires website via this link

5. It is also I believe by email available from the Flintshire Council [11] as well as the other two.

  1. There were convictions of three men in Wrexham today: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-north-east-wales-33272529

    The jury is considering verdicts on further alleged offenders.

    I don’t believe it ever existed, and is simply a scapegoating procedure after the event.

      A damage limitation exercise, – albeit quite an extremely exhaustive one.
      However top of page 18, para 6.21 and 6.22 says all we need to know.
