This home, owned by and operated under the flag of Bryn Alyn Community, is considered to not be part of Operation Pallial, because it's in Telford.
All children abused in care, under the Bryn Allyn Community, at Cotsbrook Hall have had to pluck up the courage to pick up the phone and ring Operation Pallial to make their complaint, to be told.....sorry mate, not our job, you want Operation Yewtree - Jimmy Savile and others. That was Telford, we're North Wales only.
I have had several emails asking.... where do I go from here
Try the office of keith towler, childrens commissioner for wales. they have been fantastic.
their number is 08088011000. ive been dealing with andy and john (might be james.....began with a J at least) although mostly andy.
tell them I directed you there and explain any difficulties ur facing in being heard. they should be able to give some advise,
also try the social work team from operation pallial. cheryl dennet is general social work, andy croxford is mental health social work and emma howard just sounded rather grumpy. both cheryl and andy have been fantastic help all through this.
lastly, try ringing operation pallial main office 08001181199 im dealing with Jackie McKenzie from there. really nice woman, would do anything to help any of us, i believe.
i would suggest, if you haven't already, also contacting victim support, unless you already have shrinks n mental health support in place. they will be able to help guide you through the process.
if you have anything you feel you would like to add to the macur review, looking at why waterhouse did such a shit job, their info is under the Macur Review article. i know of a few ppl from cotsbrook that are struggling to get statements made because of the remit of the original investigation.
I counted 14 occassions in the Waterhouse report where Cotsbrook Hall is mentioned as being Bryn Alyn Community and The Local Gov't Chronicle certainly believed that to be the case.
So if it was owned and run by Bryn Alyn Community ie: John Nonce Allen, and Waterhouse recognised it as B.A.C, local Govt coverage saw it as B.A.C, wtf isn't it being treated as B.A.C?
