We note the publication by the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (SOSA) of their report today. The report detailed systematic abuse by 60 paedophiles against thousands of young people in the residential care of Lambeth Council in South London.
We also note the comments by Chuka Umunna, the Labour MP for Streatham, that the Home Office should also be held liable for the abuses at Shirley Oaks.
We wonder if the Department for Education should be held liable for abuses that boarding school survivors suffered (and continue to suffer) in schools regulated and approved by them? Especially when schools have closed down and former proprietors, etc have died or disappeared.
