Appendix B Community Homes Regulations Document
Appendix C The Statement and Purpose of Wigston Lane Community Home and List of some Homes run by Leicestershire County Council
Appendix D Policy on Employees acting as “Landlords” to Service users or providing lodging to children being looked after by Local Authority 17.12.91.
After the trial of Frank Beck and Peter Jaynes for child sexual abuse at Leicestershire childrens homes, the Secretary of State for Health announced the establishment of two Inquiries – the Warner Inquiry which examined national selection and appointment of staff in children’s homes and the Kirkwood Inquiry, into Frank Beck and child sexual abuse in some of Leicestershire Children’s Home.
The Warner report “Choosing with Care” was a pivotal report in childcare first published in Dec 1992 and shamefully is still not freely available digitally despite FOI requests to the Department of Health  and FOI request to the Department of Education .
The Council response to the Kirkwood Report came in late February 1993.
The Leicestershire page  of the Project Greenlight archive holds and collects all information on Child Abuse. The Home Page  gives more information, and it is searchable by name, geographic region or police operation. They collect and publish evidence from mainstream sources. These include press reports, local authority minutes, police operation reports and mainstream news sites. Anyone with a spare half hour can help them.
Please note that victims of abuse may be triggered by reading this information. 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].
