Islington Survivors Network, set up in 2016, registered as a non-profit making Company in January 2017 (No: 10549370). It provides advocacy for and with survivors of child abuse in Islington children’s homes and foster placements in their campaign for justice.
Over 150 survivors have come forward as well as former staff and witnesses. All the work is voluntary.
ISN call out to victims and witnesses of physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect within an Islington childrens home, foster home, adoptive home or within a network of institutional abuse in Islington.
There were 42 Islington children's homes between 1960 and 2000.
In September 2017, ISN received an admission of culpability from Islington Council and an apology.
Funding is needed to support the advocacy work, engagement with Islington Council in the development of support services, campaigning and research into the history of the abuse networks and work towards a redress scheme.
Please do help us fund the work of ISN and by sharing on social media. http://www.islingtongazette.co.uk/news/politics/islington-kids-homes-abuse-scandal-council-chief-forced-to-admit-we-were-culpable-as-he-apologises-25-years-on-1-5214976
