Heathercroft Resource Centre and Secure Unit, Milton Keynes
Social Workers tried to cover up abuse at homes
It has since emerged that during the course of that investigation, Buckinghamshire social services became aware of another scandal in a home known as Heathercroft – the name has since been changed to the Heathercroft Resource Centre.
This home is for children aged between 13 and 18 and is a campus-style institution with three “houses”. In early October, care workers discovered that two boys had been performing a “sexual initiation rite” on girls. This was allegedly a regular practice in the home, which is notorious among neighbours because of the violence and vandalism by its residents.
