Two Dundee institutions are being investigated as part of child abuse inquiry

Dundee Council
"A former school and defunct orphanage in Dundee are both being investigated as part of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry..."

"The two Dundee institutions being investigated both closed down in the early 1980s: the Balgowan List D School and the Roseangle Orphanage (St Vincents)."

"The inquiry is collecting evidence from the victims of abuse."

"Dundee City Council has said it is reviewing what information it holds on the two institutions that may assist the inquiry..."

"A number of schools, including Morrison’s Academy in Crieff, and residential care units are being investigated as part of the probe."

"Other schools specifically being investigated by inquiry staff are Fettes College, Gordonstoun, the former Keil School, Loretto School and Merchiston Castle School."

"Eight children’s homes and secure units across Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Fife are also being looked into."

"Faith-based organisations being looked at include those run by religious orders including the Benedictines, Sisters of Nazareth and the Christian Brothers."

"St Ninian’s in Falkland, Fife, which was run by the Catholic Christian Brothers organisation, is also being looked at."

"The inquiry is due to report in 2019 but some survivors’ groups say they are losing confidence in the probe."

"All three original panel members have resigned since the inquiry was set up last year."
