Files of the Independent Panel appointed by Clwyd County Council to investigate child abuse in children's homes, chaired by John Jillings.
The records of the Independent Panel include much highly sensitive material, including transcripts of confidential interviews with staff, former staff and abused children. It also includes correspondence, minutes of Clwyd Social Services Committee, local and national guidelines in staff appointments, fostering, etc, and newspaper cuttings, as well as a draft of the Report itself.
Due to its nature, the collection has been listed giving little more information than the file reference numbers and titles allocated by the Panel itself. Duplicate material has been discarded, except in such cases where the condition of the original gave cause for concern, and here a duplicate has been added or substituted.
