Abstract

This report aims to provide an overview of abuse and neglect in the changing context of residential and foster care in Scotland between 1930 and 2005. This 75 year period has seen radical changes in the legislative and policy framework of child care, and significant shifts in the way in which residential and foster care have been used. Across the whole of this period, however, children and young people have been abused in care. We have identified the range of abuse that has occurred in residential and foster care, but it is not possible to determine the scale of abuse or the number of children and young people who have experienced abuse.
