Woodstock Road was a children’s home established in the 1970s to provide for children committed to the care of Newcastle Social Services.

As early as 1976 it became apparent that there were serious problems and these resulted in the investigation of staff member Hugh Bostock who was convicted in 1976 of offences relating to the children in his care. Bostock was convicted of 55 offences of sexual abuse relating to children at Woodstock Road during the period of his employment.
