Acknowledgment letter

We are writing to confirm Harmeny Education Trust’s participation in Scotland’s Redress Scheme.

Since December 1995, Harmeny Education Trust has held responsibility for running Harmeny School, providing care, education and therapeutic services for children who have experienced early years trauma through abuse and neglect. Prior to this, the school was run by Save the Children, from 1958 to 1995.

The Redress Scheme is a vital response to the courageous efforts of survivors of abuse in care in Scotland who, for many years, campaigned for justice. We acknowledge the importance of survivors being listened to, and believed, with compassion, dignity and respect, and are committed to playing our part in the collective response.

Harmeny Education Trust offers our unreserved and sincere apologies to anyone who suffered abuse or harm while in our care. While nothing can undo the hurt and pain suffered, we hope that being part of the redress scheme confirms our commitment to making amends.

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality services and the safety and wellbeing of children in our care are core to our values, practice and ethos today. We are committed to seeking new and innovative ways of involving our children and young people and their families in developing our services. We very much encourage former pupils to get in touch, and to visit the school if they wish, welcoming their feedback so that we can continuously improve.

We would like to assure anyone making an application for redress that we will respond with compassion and openness, fully cooperating in line with the values and principles of the scheme.

Yours sincerely,

Neil Squires, Chief Executive
Jennifer Scott, Chair of the Board of Trustees
On behalf of Harmeny Education Trust
