Islington Survivors Network, set up in 2016,  registered as a non-profit making Company in January 2017 (No: 10549370)  with 5 survivor directors. ISN provides advocacy for and with survivors  of child abuse in Islington children’s homes and foster placements  in their campaign for justice.
Over 250 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 49 Islington children's homes between 1960 and 2000.

In September 2017, ISN received an admission of culpability from Islington Council and an apology. We have received some funding from Islington Council which has assisted our work. 

Funding  supports 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. We are also seeking prosecutions of the abusers. 

Please do help us fund the work of ISN and by sharing on social media.
