Date May 30th 1978
Scope and Content Refers to the number of children over the age of 15 resident at Haut de la Garenne, totalling 13, and naming Michael Aubin. Refers to those who have offended, those with behavioural problems, and those who have returned to Haut de la Garenne after a previous discharge. Notes that the presence of the large number of children over the age of 15 impacts Haut de la Garenne's function as a Children's Home, and hampers discipline and evening-leave frameworks. Refers to the lack of opportunities for the residents over the age of 15 to transfer from Haut de la Garenne, mentioning Borstal, offences, a proposed adolescent unit, and Camelot [Girls Hostel]. Suggests that one resident should be returned to the care of their parents. Details need to return to the normal pattern of admissions and discharges at Haut de la Garenne. Seeks a meeting of senior Haut de la Garenne staff and staff from the Children's Office. For a copy of this Memorandum, see C/D/AW1/A3/6/2/1/WD002607.
