Acknowledgment letter

We are writing to you to confirm East Park’s participation in Redress Scotland.

East Park first opened as a residential home, offering education, in 1874.  It continues to operate to this day, still providing education and residential care, for children and young people with complex additional support needs and challenging behaviours, on the same site in Maryhill, Glasgow.

East Park welcomes the Scottish Government backed Scheme for those who experienced abuse as children while in the care of institutions and organisations before 2004.  All those who experienced life impacting abuse or harm while in such care, should be heard, and treated with dignity and compassion. East Park recognises the Redress Scotland Scheme as a national collective effort and fully endorses its underlying principles.

East Park acknowledges that there may have been times, during the period covered by the Redress Scheme, when it seriously failed in its caring responsibilities, and individuals were subjected to abusive actions.

East Park apologises wholeheartedly for any such abusive actions, and encourages any former residents so affected to contact Redress Scotland.

East Park also continues to warmly welcome former residents, whether this be for accessing records East Park may still retain, to meet with a current senior manager, or to arrange a visit.

We thank you in advance for your support of our participation.

Kieron O’Brien                                                     
Executive Director                      

Gerald Wells
Chairperson of East Park
Board of Trustees
