Former child care officer gives evidence | Channel – ITV News

A man who worked for Jersey’s Children’s Services in the 1970s and 80s has been giving evidence at the Inquiry into historical child abuse today.

Danny Wherry is a former Child Care Officer, whose job involved visiting youngsters in foster homes and institutions to check on their welfare.

Mr Wherry said he saw cases of neglect, in one case the door handle had been removed from a child’s bedroom so that they couldn’t escape.

He added that he had been given no formal training for his role and that, at the time, there were very few written policies within Children’s Services to guide him in his work
