The Woodend Assessment Centre was originally opened by Lancashire Council in 1969 as a remand home. A series of police investigations have been carried out into the home and allegations of serious abuse relating to the children placed there. An investigation was launched by Greater Manchester Police under “Operation Milam” in 2015 and has so far resulted in one arrest of a former member of staff who is due to appear before court this year.
We are aware of a number of cases that relate to serious allegations of abuse against various members of staff who worked at Woodend. We urge anyone who has been affected by abuse at Woodend to seek advice to ensure that their own allegations are properly investigated.
