Ratcliffe Road Children’s Home in Leicester was a children’s home operated by Leicestershire County Council. Widespread sexual and physical abuse was uncovered by a police investigation and a public inquiry. Many former residents have pursued successful compensation claims.

Frank Beck, who was the officer in charge of a number of children’s homes in Leicestershire, was sentenced to five life sentences in 1991 following allegations of abuse spanning the years of 1974 to 1986 at Ratcliffe Road, the Beeches and the Poplars Children’s Homes. Beck went on to die in prison. This case then led to the Kirkwood Inquiry, which was critical of the management at Leicester Social Services.
