Pilot Forum


FBGA support this Pilot Forum initiative which is wholly independent of the Scottish Government and the organizations including Quarriers.

We have been informed that there will be 3 Commissioners and a small secretariat to support the Commissioners carry out their functions and role.

FBGA believe that, given the Scottish Human Rights Commission recommendations and Commissioners with an appropriate remit and mandate, that this should be viewed by all former children of Quarriers Homes, who's experience was not what it should have been while in that organization's past care, as a positive 1st step.

We must all recognise that the Pilot Forum is purely the start of a process to deal with the historical abuse issues in Scotland. We recognise also that there may be issues and hurdles along the way in the deliberations and discussions. Expectations will be raised but we would ask former Quarriers residents to be patient and engage with the PILOT FORUM.

By engaging and contributing to the Pilot Forum, individually and collectively, former Quarriers residents will be providing the basis for the Commissioners to enable the Pilot Forum to achieve its Aims and Objectives.
