1989 SSI Greenwich Review of Residential Child Care

The Department of Health has released a 56 page Review  – 1989 Social Services Inspectorate London Borough of Greenwich Review of Residential Child Care Section  [2b]

Thanks to Daedulus again who has made this searchable [6]

[As this depends on automatic reading software, read the original when definitive wording is needed]

Guardian article 1990 Mar 7 Guardian Melanie Klein House: Victims of a divided home [3] appears to attribute quotes to a 1989 Report which are not in the one provided eg ‘putting staff and girls at risk of being emotionally and physically damaged’ and ‘becoming untenable’.

I have therefore asked for other reports, but would appreciate if anyone knows the date and year of a report into Melanie Klein Home to let me know

[Update 2 July 2017- the report I am after is MELANIE KLEIN HOUSE – Struggles with the Therapeutic Task March 1990. There are two versions , one long, one short  HT Chris Fay]

I have as yet only skimmed this review. It needs people to read it, study it, repost it, summarise it, make a timeline, put it into context with contemporary events, find newspaper cuttings, other connected reports etc

This is all able to be done without relying on authorities, IICSA, Police, CPS , so people need to come forward to help especially those who spend time moaning on social media that nothing is done about child sexual abuse. This is another opportunity to help with part of this, even archiving sources

The report does mention that Greenwich ran homes for difficult adolescents – Fairhaven, Melanie Klein and Frant Court for London Boroughs Children’s Regional Planning Committee. The Review also mentions other homes Ashburnham, Eastcomb Avenue, Erwood Rd, and a list of more homes Greenwich used in Appendix E.

In a separate request, Greenwich Borough Council have taken months only to refuse to divulge what information they hold. This request looks to be still ongoing [1]

    Cathy I suggest you ask for reports on The Hollies in Sidcup, Kent run, I believe, by Southwark until about 1990.
