Inquiry announces publication date for Lambeth Council report

25 June 2021

The Inquiry will publish its investigation report, Children in the care of Lambeth Council, at midday on Tuesday 27 July.

The report is based on 19 days of public hearings held during June and July last year. This is one of three investigations by the Inquiry into the response to allegations of child sexual abuse of children in the care of local authorities, alongside Rochdale and Nottinghamshire.

The Lambeth Council investigation considered the experiences of victims and survivors to examine the scale and nature of the sexual abuse that may have taken place in children’s homes run by Lambeth Council, as well as the extent of any institutional failures to protect these children in care from sexual abuse. This investigation also examined the Council’s foster care service.

Witnesses in this investigation included complainant core participants, former members of Lambeth Council, police officers and other public authorities.

The full report and executive summary will be published on the Inquiry's website at midday.
