The Islington Survivors Network


A new website, The Islington Survivors Network, is now live and open for contact from anyone who suffered sexual, physical or emotional abuse or neglect within an Islington children’s home, adoptive home or foster home.  A number of volunteers have worked hard to produce this resource and feedback is welcome.    Please click on the image or link below to visit.
